We investigate strategies for user cooperation in the uplink of a synchronous direct-sequence code-division multiple-access (DS/CDMA) network employing nonorthogonal spreading codes and analyze their performance. We consider two repetition-based relay schemes: decode-and-forward (DAF) and amplify-and-forward (AAF). Focusing on the use of linear multiuser(More)
—This paper addresses the problem of energy-efficient resource allocation in the downlink of a cellular OFDMA system. Three definitions of the energy efficiency are considered for system design, accounting for both the radiated and the circuit power. User scheduling and power allocation are optimized across a cluster of coordinated base stations with a(More)
In this correspondence we propose track-before-detect (TBD) strategies for space-time adaptive processing (STAP) radars. As a preliminary step we introduce the target and noise models in discrete-time form. Then, resorting to generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT)-based and ad hoc procedures we derive detectors for two different scenarios (a point better(More)
In this paper, a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) detection problem is considered. At first, we derive the generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT) for arbitrary transmitted signals and arbitrary time-correlation of the disturbance. Then, we investigate design criteria for the transmitted waveforms in both power-unlimited and power-limited systems and(More)
In this paper we present a novel procedure for multi-frame detection in radar systems. The proposed architecture consists of a pre-processing stage, which extracts a set of candidate alarms (or plots) from the raw data measurements (e.g., this can be the Detector and Plot-Extractor of common radar systems), and a track-before-detect (TBD) processor, which(More)
In this paper we present a novel scheme for multiframe target detection in radar systems. The proposed architecture consists of a pre-processing stage, which extracts a set of candidate alarms (or plots) from the raw data measurements, and a multi-frame detector, which jointly elaborates observations from multiple scans, so as to exploit the space-time(More)
