Physical (PHY) layer security approaches for wireless communications can prevent eavesdropping without upper layer data encryption. However, they are hampered by wireless channel conditions: absent feedback, they are typically feasible only when the source-destination channel is better than the source-eavesdropper channel. Node cooperation is a means to(More)
A novel approach of blind channel estimation for OFDM systems is proposed. A linear transformation is applied on each block before it enters the OFDM system. The transform imposes a correlation structure on the transmitted blocks, which is exploited at the receiver to recover the channel via simple cross-correlation operations. The proposed approach is(More)
Via collaborative beamforming, nodes in a wireless network are able to transmit a common message over long distances in an energy efficient fashion. However, the process of making available the same message to all collaborating nodes introduces delays. In this paper, a medium access control-physical (MAC-PHY) cross-layer scheme is proposed that enables(More)
A multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar system is proposed for obtaining angle and Doppler information on potential targets. Transmitters and receivers are nodes of a small scale wireless network and are assumed to be randomly scattered on a disk. The transmit nodes transmit uncorrelated waveforms. Each receive node applies compressive sampling to the(More)
—We present a novel frequency-domain framework for the identification of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system driven by white, mutually independent, unobservable inputs. The system frequency response is obtained based on singular value decomposition (SVD) of a matrix constructed based on the power-spectrum and slices of polyspectra of the system(More)
Cooperative jamming is an approach that has been recently proposed for improving physical layer based security for wireless networks in the presence of an eavesdropper. While the source transmits its message to its destination, a relay node transmits a jamming signal to create interference at the eavesdropper. In this paper, a scenario in which the relay is(More)
It was recently shown that MIMO radars with sparse sensing and matrix completion (MC) can significantly reduce the volume of data required by MIMO radars for accurate target detection and estimation. In MIMO-MC radars, the subsampled target returns are forwarded by the receive antennas to a fusion center, partially filling a matrix, referred to as the data(More)
— We consider the problem of system reconstruction from arbitrarily selected slices of the n n nth-order output spectrum. We establish that unique identification of the impulse response of a system can be performed, up to a scalar and a circular shift, based on any two one-dimensional (1-D) slices of the discretized n n nth-order output spectrum, (n n n 3),(More)
Breast cancer diagnosis through ultrasound tissue characterization was studied using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis of combinations of acoustic features, patient age, and radiological findings. A feature fusion method was devised that operates even if only partial diagnostic data are available. The ROC methodology uses ordinal dominance(More)
