Maximum attainable accuracy of ultra-wideband estimation of range

Andrey P. Trifonov, Marina B. Bespalova, A. V. Kuznetsov


The paper considers characteristics of the maximum likelihood estimate and the Bayes estimate in the case of a quadratic loss function and with abnormal errors taken into account. Application of the Bayes algorithm is shown to diminish the range measurement errors in the threshold domain. Optimal duration of the sounding pulse corresponding to a minimum error of range measurement is determined.
