Compressed Sensing Reception of Bursty UWB Impulse Radio is Robust to Narrow-Band Interference
—We have recently proposed a novel receiver for Ultra-Wide-band Impulse-Radio communication in bursty applications like Wireless Sensor Networks. The receiver, based on the principle of Compressed Sensing (CS), exploits the sparsity of the transmitted signal to achieve reliable demodulation. It acquires a modest number of projections of the received signal using analog correlators, and performs a joint decoding of the time of arrival and the data bits from these under-sampled measurements via an efficient quadratic program. In this paper we examine the robustness of this receiver to strong narrow-band interference (NBI) from primary licensed systems like WiMAX. First, by choosing frequency selective test functions in the front-end correlators, we ensure that the interferer can corrupt only a small fraction of the CS measurements. Then we implement a ‘digital notch’ by identifying and dropping those affected measurements during the quadratic programming reconstruction. The method...
