Date of Defense 2003-01-31 Availability unrestricted AbstractIn recent years, research on the design and performance evaluation of suboptimal receiver implementations has received considerable attention owing to complexity in the realization of the optimal receiver algorithms over wireless channels. This thesis addresses the effects of using reduced complexity receivers for the Satellite Digital Audio Radio (SDAR), Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) and UltraWideband (UWB) communications technologies.
A graphical-user-interface simulation tool has been developed to predict the link reliability performance of the SDAR services in the continental United States. Feasibility study of receiving both satellite and terrestrial repeater signals using a selection diversity (single antenna) receiver has also been performed.
The thesis also develops a general mathematical framework for studying the efficacy of a sub-optimal generalized selection combining (GSC) diversity receiver over generalized fading channel models. The GSC receiver adaptively combines a subset of M diversity paths with the highest instantaneous signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) out of the total L available diversity paths. The analytical framework is applicable for rake receiver designs in CDMA and UWB communications.
