Abstract

The problem of joint transmitter and receiver design for optimum output performance in the context of detection in the presence of clutter and noise is addressed here by maximizing the receiver output signal power to average interference plus noise ratio (SINR) at the specific decision instant. The receiver optimization leads to output SINR in terms of the transmit waveform, and transmitter optimization is further carried out subject to energy and bandwidth constraints. The new design proposed here leads to threshold constraints on transmit energy and the overall performance as a function of bandwidth is illustrated here for various target, clutter and noise scenes.
