Optimum interference excision in spread spectrum communications using open loop adaptive filters.

A generalized approach for interference suppression in PN spread-spectrum communications using open-loop adaptive excision filtering is introduced. The excision filter coefficients under this technique depend on the jammer power and its instantaneous frequency (IF) information, and both values can be gained in the time–frequency domain. The dependency of the excision filter characteristics on the interference power, which was absent in past contributions in this area, is of significant importance as it allows optimum tradeoff between interference removal and the amount of self-noise generated from the induced correlation across the PN chip sequence, due to filtering. This tradeoff is bounded by the two extreme cases of no selfnoise, which implies preprocessing disabled, and full interference excision, which the case previously considered. In this paper, we derive the FIR excision filters that maximize the receiver signal-to-noise ratio for narrowband interference and discuss the generalization to nonstationary jamming environment.
