Narrow-And Broadband Interference Robustness for OOK/BPPM Based Energy Detection
This paper investigates the energy detector's robustness in presence of narrow- and broadband interference within an OOK/BPPM based non-coherent MIR UWB communication system. Based on the energy detector's PG closed-form expressions of noise and interference related second order moment statistics at the output of an energy detection receiver are provided. This reveals insight into the impact of interference and system specific parameters. Furthermore, the analysis of the relative modulation specific PG with respect to various interference parameters shows the robustness of OOK/BPPM. Future work focuses on the approach's extension to other pulse shapes, e.g., cosine-shaped pulses, to other modulation schemes as well as to realistic channel models.
