Consider the problem of signal detection via multiple distributed noisy sensors. We study a linear decision fusion rule of [Z. Quan, S. Cui, and A. H. Sayed, ¿Optimal Linear Cooperation for Spectrum Sensing in Cognitive Radio Networks,¿ IEEE J. Sel. Topics Signal Process., vol. 2, no. 1, pp. 28-40, Feb. 2008] to combine the local statistics from individual sensors into a global statistic for binary hypothesis testing. The objective is to maximize the probability of detection subject to an upper… CONTINUE READING
