The separation of signals from noisy vector measurements is obtained by taking advantage of the Middleton Class A model of noise amplitude and the correlation of the components of the noise process due to their polarization. The signal is assumed to be white Gaussian. Noise is a superposition of M non-Gaussian processes, each with a fixed azimuth of polarization. Neither the number of processes (M) nor their azimuths are known. The separation of signal from noise is based on the conditional…

This work proposes to adaptively classify (and mask) the estimated channel samples by minimizing the Bayes risk for space-time systems, and iteratively estimated the parameters of the probability densities from the estimated channels and contribute to define the optimum threshold.
Distributed Sensing of Interference Pattern in Dense Cooperative Wireless Networks
A weighted-average consensus algorithm nested within a decision-directed procedure for distributed Bayesian detection of the PU spectrum occupancy is proposed, which provides the estimate of the complete interference pattern to each SU regardless of the incomplete visibility at each node.

Detection of Signals in the Presence of Strong, Signal-Like Interference and Impulse Noise
The methodology that is proposed for signal detection is to identify, categorize, model, and remove the non-Gaussian components in a piece-wise fashion based on their ease of separability from the background Gaussian noise and weak signals.
Detection of weak signals in narrowband non-Gaussian noise
A rather simple adaptive nonlinear receiver structure is described which attempts to adapt to the unknown prevailing noise environment and is shown to provide fairly efficient and robust performance in a wide variety of non-Gaussian narrowband noise environments.
Recursive algorithms for identification of impulsive noise channels
In the present work, a recursive decision-directed estimator for online identification of the parameters of the Class A model is proposed, based on an adaptive Bayesian classification of each of a sequence of Class A envelope samples as an impulsive sample or as a background sample.
Robust-resistant spectrum estimation
Conventional spectrum estimates of both the smoothed-periodogram and autoregressive variety lack robustness toward outliers in the original data. Outliers and other local perturbations are modeled by

The prospecting of densely urbanized areas by the measurement of magnetic and electric natural fields is severely hampered by electromagnetic (EM) noise. Active man-made EM noise sources can
Recursive filtering with non-Gaussian noises
A new method for efficient evaluation of the score function is developed that employs an adaptive normal expansion to expand thescore function followed by truncation of the higher order terms and can be approximated by a few central moments.

Optimal nonlinear detector structures for known discretetime signals in such noise are derived and their large-sample performance compared to that of a linear detector is studied using asymptotic relative efficiency.

In this paper an approximation that permits the explicit calculation of the a posteriori density from the Bayesian recursion relations is discussed and applied to the solution of the nonlinear filtering problem.

A detector which is designed to operate in a correlated Gaussian-plus-impulsive-noise environment is presented and uses a two-sided threshold test to determine the presence of impulsive samples.
Adaptive robust impulse noise filtering
Using the proposed adaptive preprocessor to clean the impulsive components in received data samples, conventional linear systems based on the Gaussian assumption can work in an impulsive environment with little if any modification.
