A decision theoretic approach for waveform design in joint radar communications applications

In this paper, we develop a decision theoretic approach for radar waveform design to maximize the joint radar communications performance in spectral coexistence. Specifically, we develop an adaptive waveform design approach by posing the design problem as a partially observable Markov decision process (POMDP), which leads to a hard optimization problem. We extend an approximate … Read more

Radar Waveform Optimization for Joint Radar Communications Performance

We develop and present a radar waveform design method that optimizes the spectral shape of the radar waveform so that joint performance of a cooperative radar-communications system is maximized. The continuous water-filling (WF) spectralmask shaping method presented in this paper is based the previously derived spectral-mask shaping technique. However, the method presented in this paper … Read more

Novel Radar Waveform Optimization for a Cooperative Radar-Communications System

We develop and present the novel minimum estimation error variance waveform design method, that optimizes the spectral shape of a unimodular radar waveform such that the performance of a joint radar-communications system that shares spectrum is maximized. We also perform a numerical study to compare the performance of the new technique with the previously derived … Read more

Achievable Rates for a LAN-Limited Distributed Receiver in Gaussian Interference

A base node seeks to receive a broadcast with its own observation in addition to side-information provided via a local area network (LAN) from several ‘helper nodes,’potentially occluded by an external interferer. Ideally, helpers would convey their precise observations to the base but the LAN has limited capacity, so helpers must compress and forward. Bounds … Read more
