Paper Abstract

This paper explores methods to excise broadband interference signals from a Global Positioning System (GPS) spread spectrum signal using bilinear transformations. The Wigner-Ville Distribution allows for signal and jammer time-frequency characterization. The jammer signals, identified in the Time-Frequency (T-F) domain, are excised by zeroing peak amplitudes above a statistically determined detection threshold. The GPS signal is synthesized using inverse Wigner transform involving least squares amplitude and phase matching. Pre-processing increases Pseudo-Random Noise (PRN) correlator performance due to significant reduction in effective Jammer-to-Signal ratio (JSR). The proposed technique improves receiver robustness for large classes of broadband jammers, not limited to instantaneously narrowband jammers with a constant modulus or well defined instantaneous frequencies, while improving bit-error-performance and GPS Coarse Acquisition (C/A) and tracking in hostile interference environments.
