Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Integrated Communication and Navigation Systems

Acronym: ICNS
Main Objective: The project deals with the following communication/navigation problems:

1-Receiver performance evaluation by applying importance sampling techniques.
This problem was dealt with in Phase I assuming additive white Gaussian
channels and phase drift modeled as Browniam motion. The purpose in Phase II
is to to extend the study to fading channels and higher order phase drift dynamics.

2-In Phase I we modeled the relative emitter/receiver dynamics as a third order
Gauss-Markov process, and designed the receiver accordingly. To perform
optimally, the assumed model has to fit the actual dynamics; otherwise,
robustness criteria and adaptive algorithms have to be applied.
