Enhanced Performance of FH Detection System Using Adaptive Threshold Level

Abstract

AbstractThis work investigates the evaluation performance of detection system for Frequency Hopping (FH) signals based on Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) with proposed decision circuit based on Adaptive Threshold Level (ATL), where the threshold level changes its value automatically without manual intervention depending on the estimated values of (SNR) in the channel, the level will be high when the noise is high and vice versus. A comparison in evaluation performance were made with a conventional mode where the decision circuit based on Manually Change Threshold Level (MCTL) done by the detector according to its observation on sensing the Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). The results shows that the proposed mode (adaptive) is give best results for probability of detection PD and probability of false alarm PF comparing with the (Manually Change). Also the results of (adaptive) are compared with that theoretical computation and gives a very small error for high noise while vanish for low noise.
