POTENTIAL LIMIT AND QUALITY INDICATORS OF SUPER-RAYLEIGH SIGNAL RESOLUTION
Klimov S.A., firstname.lastname@example.org
In this article the directions of search for potential limit of super-Rayleigh
resolution are systematized. The simple and convenient resolution quality
indicator system for performance evaluation of full signal resolution
is established. The question of existence of super-Rayleigh resolution
potential limit in solving radar detection-resolution problem is answered.
It is shown, that resolving curves of single signals are determined rigidly
and they cannot be exceeded if priori statistical information is given.
Then full resolution probability curves determine the limit of resolution
for fixed false alarm probability and coefficient of correlation of signals.
The degree of approximation to potential limit of super-Rayleigh resolution
for a large number of digital spectral analyses algorithms is evaluated
by using simulation modeling.
Keywords: resolution, super-Rayleigh resolution, resolution limit,
quality indicators of signal resolution, digital spectral analyses.
DIGITAL PROCESSING OF RADAR PULSE-TRAIN WAVEFORMS USING LOW-ORDER WEIGHT
Zaytsev G.V., email@example.com
The paper analyzes
processing algorithm of pulse-train waveforms in digital radar receiver.
The algorithm consists of range gating and doppler-filter-bank calculation
in each range gate. Filter bank is realized by spectral analysis with
preliminary weighting to reduce filter sidelobes. Several versions of
spectrum calculations are discussed.
Each waveform with specific duration requires specific weight function.
So for radars with wide set of pulse trains the number of weighting coefficients
to be stored becomes unacceptable. Main part of the paper tackles this
problem. To simplify implementation the paper suggests using synthesized
by the author weight functions with simple cosine-sum representation,
given roll-off rate, and minimum sidelobe level for the given width of
the main lobe. Simple representation allows calculating weights in real
time during processing instead of their storage. Any of these functions
proved to be near-optimal for wide set of waveform parameters. For further
simplification, step weight function are examined with step length being
equal to pulse repetition period. It is shown that for suggested functions
with large roll-off rate transition to step functions leads to insignificant

IMPLEMENTATION OF STOCHASTIC SIGNAL PROCESSING ALGORITHMS IN REAL ARITHMETIC
Ratynsky M.V., Petrov S.V., email@example.com,
Four problems of stochastic signal processing in receiving system with
antenna array are discussed: detection, enumeration and arrival direction
estimation of signal sources and adaptive space filtering. The solution
of the problems is implemented generally in complex arithmetic. It is
proved that solution of all the problems can be implemented in real arithmetic
when antenna array has central symmetric structure. The results of complex
and real solutions are really identical for all cases, but in the second
case (real arithmetic) the amount of computations is four times less as
compared with the first one (complex arithmetic).
Keywords: signal processing algorithms, stochastic signals, signal
detection, sources enumeration, arrival direction estimation, adaptive
space filtering, real arithmetic.
A NEW METHOD OF FINDING PROBABILITY CHARACTERISTICS IN THE OUTPUT OF NONLINEAR
Bartenev V.G., Bartenev M.V., firstname.lastname@example.org
The paper presents a new method of finding probability characteristics
in the output of nonlinear systems using elliptical properties of some
distributions. Elliptically symmetric distributions are second-order distributions
with probability densities whose contours of equal height are ellipses.
This class includes the Gaussian, Laplace distributions and others which
can be generated from certain first-order distributions. Such desirable
features for the description of the second-order statistics may be used
in the transformation analysis of a random signal by the nonlinear devices.
These elliptically symmetric distributions simplify the evaluation of
the output probability characteristics. That is the base of the suggested
method in this paper which is illustrated by real losses of detection
with analytically developed low false alarm rate of nonlinear multiplier
with small integrated samples when the output distribution differs substantially
Keywords: Elliptically symmetric are second-order distributions,
the output probability characteristics of the nonlinear devices, detection
probability, false alarm probability, multiplier - integrator.

REDUCING COMPLEX NOISES IN SPEECH USING FILTERING IN MODULATION DOMAIN
Azarov I.S., Vashkevich M.I., Lihachev D.S., Petrovsky A.A., firstname.lastname@example.org,
The paper presents a method for noise reduction which is capable of handling
noises of different nature such as white, colored quasiperiodicor reverberation.
This all-purpose method is based on filtration in modulation domain. In
order to obtain modulation signals source speech is decomposed into overlapping
analytical subband signals using a filter bank. Then each analytical signal
is parametrized in terms of instantaneous amplitude and frequency. Subchannel
samples are grouped by instantaneous frequency values and their overall
intensity envelopes are evaluated. Envelopes are filtered with a band-pass
filter which retains speech modulations and attenuates noise modulations.
Finally subband gains are calculated and applied to subchannel signals
and the cleared speech signal is reconstructed. The paper contains experimental
results that show that the proposed method has a better performance than
its known counterpart based on RASTA (RelAtive SpecTrA).
Keywords: speech signal, filtering, modulation area, noise reduction,
synthesis, evaluation of quality.
SOME ISSUES OF SPECTRAL EFFICIENCY INCREASING OF COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS:
Bakulin M.G, Kreindelin V.B., Shumov A.P., email@example.com,
Extension of Mazo's concept of faster-than-Nyquist (FTN) signaling to
pulse trains that modulate a bank of subcarriers is considered. This method
corresponds to two dimensional FTN signaling. The signal processing is
similar to orthogonal frequency division multiplex (OFDM) transmission
but the subchannels are not orthogonal. Despite nonorthogonal pulses and
subcarriers, the method achieves the isolated-pulse error performance
and it does so in as little as half the bandwidth of ordinary OFDM system.
Keywords: wireless systems, nonorthogonal transmission, spectral
efficiency, OFDM, subcarriers bank, Mazo concept.

systems. Results of research proving the effectiveness of the proposed
algorithm are presented.

active perception theory, interference, frequency estimate.
ADAPTIVE ALGORITHM OF RECURSIVE DIGITAL FILTER PARAMETER DETERMINING
FOR ACOUSTIC FEEDBACK COMPENSATION
Kondratyev K.V., Uglev V.A., Nepomnyaschy O.V., Sergeevich V.N., email@example.com,
This article considers
the question of the audio signal adaptive filtering with a digital filter
that suppresses acoustic feedback. The algorithm for adjusting the parameters
of the recursive digital filter is put forward, this algorithm allows
to take into account the changing dynamics of the acoustic environment
in the room. Filter characterization is realized each time while in the
acoustic path information gap lasting of the order of 1-2 seconds is changing
wanted signal. The results of testing the algorithm for signal processing
with a loudspeaker system showed that high efficiency of acoustic feedback
suppression (up to 93%). It is also considered the prospect of the proposed
filter application for the advanced systems of man-machine interaction.
Keywords: audio, sound pressure, an adaptive filter, a recursive
algorithm, noise compensation, correlation function.
