Caption: FIGURE 16: Comparison of receiver bandwidths operated under the same bit rate of 2.4 kbps for which the transmitter was located on the eighth floor of the building.
The constant altimetric beat frequency [f.sub.Ho] results in an effective narrowing of the receiver bandwidth due to the narrow band-pass second filter and a corresponding improvement of the signal/noise ratio at the ICW mode.
* Based upon the SNR requirements for 64 QAM of 34.4 dB, the required receiver bandwidth (20 MHz) and an achievable receiver noise figure of approximately 5 dB (see Equation 1) indicate that the receiver input power required to achieve a [10.sup.-6] BER is approximately -61.5 dBm.
There are two more restrictions on the search approach - one is that the receiver bandwidth must be wide enough to accept the signal being detected, and the second is that the receiver must have adequate sensitivity to receive the signal with adequate quality.
From this "rule of thumb" number, the ideal thermal noise level in any receiver bandwidth can be quickly calculated.
By varying the bandwidth of the ACT filter, the receiver bandwidth may be matched closely to the information bandwidth of the desired signal, minimizing the channel noise.
This includes antenna pointing, antenna patterns, receiver tuning, receiver bandwidth, demodulation techniques, non-linear effects, overload conditions, etc.
The IF in this example is low enough to use a very narrow bandwidth SAW filter to set the receiver bandwidth.
Frequency-swept noise jamming can generate false target detections when the jamming frequency sweeps through the radar receiver bandwidth. An effective radar counter is the use of guardband-controlled blanking in the receiver.
This may be done by assigning one or more slopes to the phase noise characteristic or by treating the phase noise as constant over the receiver bandwidth. By treating the phase noise as constant over the receiver bandwidth, the single sideband phase noise is thus, L{f} = IPN - 10 Log [B.sub.if] The offset frequency (f) is given by the simultaneous signal separation less one-half of the IF bandwidth [(B.sub.if)].
The switching is performed in a digital fashion; the time duration during each dwell within the receiver bandwidth is commensurate with the pulsewidth, and thus the bandwidth, of the victim radar.
The LM has the potential for wider receiver bandwidth, since the LC compressive network has to have a DDL covering twice the receiver bandwidth.
