Chapter 14. Case Studies - Detection Problem

14.1. Introduction

In this chapter we address a real-world signal detection problem. The project sought to improve upon the detection capability of a current system by improving the sensitivity of the sensor as well as by leveraging the improvements possible through digital signal processing technology. Development and testing of the new system is ongoing.

14.2. Detection Problem - Magnetic Signal Detection

Referring to Figure 2.1 we proceed to discuss the various steps.

1. Problem Statement

The problem was to detect a target that was emitting a periodic electromagnetic signal on an intermittent basis and was embedded in ambient noise and very spiky geomagnetic noise. The sensor that acquires ...
