PROJECT TITLE :
Data association in multi-input single-output passive coherent location schemes
Efficient combination of multiple input multiple output (MIMO) and passive coherent location (PCL) ideas is expected to improve performance of localisation schemes. While using multiple antennas at transmit and receive sides provides spatial diversity, it is possible to obtain similar performance by using multiple transmitters, already transmitting standard signals (such as digital TV) in the environment (also known as illuminators of opportunity). However, in this case, it is not always possible to ensure that signals of different transmitters are orthogonal to each other. In such cases, resolving signals of multiple transmitters reflected from multiple objects is not a trivial problem. One such scenario arises when transmitters of a single frequency network (SFN) are used. Consequently, in order to obtain the desired diversity gain, it is necessary to develop proper techniques to assign each echo arriving at the receiver to a given transmitter and a specific object to be localised. In this paper, we propose a scheme that addresses the association problem in an efficient way. Also, we consider the case of multiple antennas only at the transmit side while using a single receiver, which is the case of a multi-input single-output (MISO) system, a subset of MIMO systems, in general.
