New Correlation Functions for CBOC Satellite Signal Synchronization
Source: Sungkyunkwan University
Binary Offset Carrier (BOC) signal synchronization is based on the correlation between the received and locally generated BOC signals. Thus, the multiple side-peaks in BOC autocorrelation are one of the main error sources in synchronizing BOC signals. Recently, a new correlation function with no side-peaks was proposed for sine or cosine phased BOC signal synchronization by the authors. In this paper, they propose a novel correlation function for Composite Binary Offset Carrier (CBOC) signals by using the similar method to that, which has a better power ratio than the CBOC autocorrelation.
