Parameter Estimation and Statistical Signal Analysis

Paper abstract
The objective of this paper is to determine the potentialities of an optimal detection scheme within the framework of subscriber location. A method for detecting the first arriving path from the estimated propagation channel in a multipath environment is described as a mean of enhancing subscriber location. A binary hypothesis test is performed, some expressions for Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) detectors are derived and their performances are evaluated for different configurations. The use of Generalized Likelihood Ratio Test (GLRT) is also commented and some preliminary results are shown.
