Advanced CPM receiver for the NATO tactical narrowband waveform

  title={Advanced CPM receiver for the NATO tactical narrowband waveform},
  author={Enrico Casini and Dario Fertonani and Giulio Colavolpe},
The NATO tactical narrowband waveform (NBWF) is considered in this paper with particular attention to the characteristics and the performance of the NC3A functional reference software. We describe the relevant parts of the software focusing on the signaling scheme which is based on the serial concatenation of a convolutional code with a continuous phase modulation (CPM) through an interleaver. The proposed CPM receiver exploits an advanced soft-input soft-output detection algorithm which relies… CONTINUE READING
