Abstract

Despite the widespread use of the additive Gaussian noise model, it is well recognized that many important environments are distinctly non-Gaussian. We present a detector which is designed to operate in a correlated Gaussian plus impulsive noise environment The detector whitens the data robustly and then uses a two-sided threshold test to determine the presence of impulsive samples. The impulsive samples are discarded and the remaining samples are used to detect the presence or absence of a signal using a matched filter. An approximate analysis is presented and simulations are used to demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach. © 1992 IEEE
