A first look at certain wideband detec­tion problems

Martin Nesenbergs

Abstract: We consider a wideband detection problem where the number and struc­ture of the received signal set is arbitrary. A particular spectral weighting approach is taken and the processing results are found to be inadequate. The search for substantially better detectors, in particular for those with optimal features, is initiated. Since the entire task is quite large and technically unresolved, we conclude this study with an outline of needed future work.
