In this paper, a framework is presented for the joint optimization of the analog transmit and receive filter with respect to a parameter estimation problem. At the receiver, conventional signal processing systems restrict the two-sided bandwidth of the analog prefilter <inline-formula><tex-math notation="LaTeX">$B$</tex-math></inline-formula> to the rate of the analog-to-digital converter <inline-formula><tex-math notation="LaTeX">$f_s$</tex-math> </inline-formula> to comply with the well-known…

On the delay-Doppler tracking error for sub-nyquist satellite-based synchronization

This work discusses the effect of sub-Nyquist sampling (2B > fs) onto the delay-Doppler estimation performance when, in addition to the observation model, knowledge about the temporal evolution of the parameters is available through a state-space model and employs a Bayesian performance bound for the parameter tracking error.

This work presents for the first time a design and implementation of an Xampling-based hardware prototype that allows sampling of radar signals at rates much lower than Nyquist, and demonstrates by real-time analog experiments that the system is able to maintain reasonable recovery capabilities, while sampling radar signals that require sampling at a rate of about 30 MHz at a total rate of 1 MHz.
