    OFDM Synthetic Aperture Radar Imaging with Sufficient Cyclic Prefix

    Full text link
    The existing linear frequency modulated (LFM) (or step frequency) and random noise synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems may correspond to the frequency hopping (FH) and direct sequence (DS) spread spectrum systems in the past second and third generation wireless communications. Similar to the current and future wireless communications generations, in this paper, we propose OFDM SAR imaging, where a sufficient cyclic prefix (CP) is added to each OFDM pulse. The sufficient CP insertion converts an inter-symbol interference (ISI) channel from multipaths into multiple ISI-free subchannels as the key in a wireless communications system, and analogously, it provides an inter-range-cell interference (IRCI) free (high range resolution) SAR image in a SAR system. The sufficient CP insertion along with our newly proposed SAR imaging algorithm particularly for the OFDM signals also differentiates this paper from all the existing studies in the literature on OFDM radar signal processing. Simulation results are presented to illustrate the high range resolution performance of our proposed CP based OFDM SAR imaging algorithm.Comment: This version has been accepted by IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing.

    Goldstone Modes in Renormalizable Supersymmetric SO(10) Model

    Full text link
    We solve the Goldstone modes in the renormalizable SUSY SO(10) model with general couplings. The Goldstones are expressed by the Vacuum Expectation Values and the Clebsch-Gordan coefficients of relevant symmetries without explicit dependence on the parameters of the model.Comment: 27 pages.

    Optimal Quantization in Energy-Constrained Sensor Networks under Imperfect Transmission

    This paper addresses the optimization of quantization at local sensors under strict energy constraint and imperfect transmission to improve the reconstruction performance at the fusion center in the wireless sensor networks (WSNs). We present optimized quantization scheme including the optimal quantization bit rate and the optimal transmission power allocation among quantization bits for BPSK signal and binary orthogonal signal with envelope detection, respectively. The optimization of the quantization is formulated as a convex problem and the optimal solution is derived analytically in both cases. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed quantization schemes
