A Novel Method for Spectrum Sensing of Linear Modulation Schemes

  title={A Novel Method for Spectrum Sensing of Linear Modulation Schemes},
  author={Anantha K. Karthik and Jameer Ali M.S and Mohammed Zafar Ali Khan and A. Bhagavathi Rao},
  journal={arXiv: Signal Processing},
In this paper, we propose and evaluate a novel algorithm for performing spectrum sensing on linear modulations based on second-order cyclic features of the received signals. The proposed approach has similar computational complexity to that of energy detection and outperforms energy detection and other sensing schemes such as Eigenvalue based sensing in the presence of noise uncertainties for a given value of the probability of false alarm.

A novel spectrum sensing algorithm in cognitive radio

A fast novel spectrum sensing algorithm for cognitive radios based on cyclic autocorrelation which outperforms the energy detector in the presence of noise power uncertainty and is easily applicable because it is also a blind detection method.

Eigenvalue-based spectrum sensing algorithms for cognitive radio

New sensing methods based on the eigenvalues of the covariance matrix of signals received at the secondary users can be used for various signal detection applications without requiring the knowledge of signal, channel and noise power.

Cyclostationary-based low complexity wideband spectrum sensing using compressive sampling

This paper exploits the sparsity of the two-dimensional spectral correlation function (SCF), and proposes a reduced complexity reconstruction method of the Nyquist SCF from the sub-Nyquist samples, and shows that for a given spectrum sparsity, there exists a lower bound on sampling rates that allows reliable SCF reconstruction.

Spectrum Sensing in Cognitive Radios Based on Multiple Cyclic Frequencies

A generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT) for detecting the presence of cyclostationarity using multiple cyclic frequencies is proposed and distributed decision making is employed by combining the quantized local test statistics from many secondary users.
