Optimum Fft-based Frequency Acquisition with Application to Cos Pas-sa Rsat

  title={Optimum Fft-based Frequency Acquisition with Application to Cos Pas-sa Rsat},
  author={Sverre Holm}
In the case of a single sinusoid or multiple weD-separated sinusoids, a coarse estimator consisting of a windowed Fourier transform foDowed by a rme estimator which is an interpolator is a good approximation to an optimal frequency acquisition and measurement algorithm. The design tradeoffs are described, and for the rme frequency estimator it is shown that a simple and good method is to fit a Gaussian function to the fast Fourier transform (FFT) peak and its two neighbors. This method is able… CONTINUE READING
