We consider the problem of estimation of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of an unknown deterministic complex phase signal in additive complex white Gaussian noise. The phase of the signal is arbitrary and is not assumed to be known a priori unlike many SNR estimation methods that assume phase synchronization. We show that the moments of the complex sequences exhibit useful mean-ergodicity properties enabling a ‘‘method-of-moments’’ (MoM)-SNR estimator. The Cramer–Rao bounds (CRBs) on the signal… CONTINUE READING
