Characteristics of the quasi-probable detection of finite signal with the unknown time of arrival

Andrey P. Trifonov, A. V. Smorgonsky


An algorithm synthesized for certain predictable signal waveform has been used to detect signals having a priori unknown waveform. Asymptotically exact, as the signal-to-noise ratio increases, expressions for the signal detection characteristics were derived under conditions of interferences in the form of white Gaussian noise. The synthesized algorithm was simulated on a computer.
