AbstractSOQPSK-TG is a highly bandwidth-efficient constant-envelope modulation so that it has been applied in airspace telemetry widely. We compare four types of coherent detectors for SOQPSK-TG, which are optimal detector, pulse truncation (PT) detector, standard OQPSK detector and modified OQPSK detector. The simulation and analysis results indicate that PT detector has the advantages of low complexity and good performance, so it has more practicality value.

MULTISPECTRAL DATA COMPRESSION USING STAGGERED DETECTOR ARRAYS (LANDSAT, REMOTE SENSING).GRAY, ROBERT TERRY. (The University of Arizona., 1983)A multispectral image data compression scheme has been investigated in which a scene is imaged onto a detector array whose elements vary in spectral sensitivity. The elements are staggered such that the scene is undersampled within any single spectral band, but is sufficiently sampled by the total array. Compression thus results from transmitting only one spectral component of a scene at any given array coordinate. The pixels of the mosaic array may then be directly transmitted via PCM or undergo further compression (e.g. DPCM). The scheme has the advantages of attaining moderate compression without compression hardware at the transmitter, high compression with low-order DPCM processing, and a choice of reconstruction algorithms suitable to the application at hand. Efficient spatial interpolators such as parametric cubic convolution may be employed to fill in the missing pixels in each spectral band in cases where high resolution is not a requirement. However, high-resolution reconstructions are achieved by a space-variant minimum-mean-square spectral regression estimation of the missing pixels of each band from the adjacent samples of other bands. In this case, reconstruction accuracy is determined by the local spectral correlations between bands, the estimates of which include the effects of interband contrast reversal. Digital simulations have been performed on three-band aerial and four-band Landsat multispectral images. Spectral regressions of mosaic array data can provide reconstruction errors comparable to second-order DPCM processing and lower than common intraband interpolators at data rates of approximately 2 bits per pixel. When the mosaic data is itself DPCM-coded, the radiometric accuracy of spectral regression is superior to direct DPCM for equivalent bit rates.
Modeling Stochastic Processes in Gamma-Ray Imaging Detectors and Evaluation of a Multi-Anode PMT Scintillation Camera for Use with Maximum-Likelihood Estimation MethodsHunter, William Coulis Jason (The University of Arizona., 2007)Maximum-likelihood estimation or other probabilistic estimation methods are underused in many areas of applied gamma-ray imaging, particularly in biomedicine. In this work, we show how to use our understanding of stochastic processes in a scintillation camera and their effect on signal formation to better estimate gamma-ray interaction parameters such as interaction position or energy.To apply statistical estimation methods, we need an accurate description of the signal statistics as a function of the parameters to be estimated. First, we develop a probability model of the signals conditioned on the parameters to be estimated by carefully examining the signal generation process. Subsequently, the likelihood model is calibrated by measuring signal statistics for an ensemble of events as a function of the estimate parameters.In this work, we investigate the application of ML-estimation methods for three topics. First, we design, build, and evaluate a scintillation camera based on a multi-anode PMT readout for use with ML-estimation techniques. Next, we develop methods for calibrating the response statistics of a thick-detector gamma camera as a function of interaction depth. Finally, we demonstrate the use of ML estimation with a modified clinical Anger camera.
Design of a shield system for a hyper-pure germanium detector as a stack monitor for use in accident conditions at a nuclear power plantPetito, Anthony Bruno, 1967- (The University of Arizona., 1993)Collimator and shield configurations for two high-purity germanium detectors were designed for use during a loss of coolant accident at a boiling water reactor. The detectors will return information concerning stack releases to operators within a 15 minute time frame. Operating parameters for the stack monitors are defined by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) and a 24 hour source term generated by ORIGEN2. A lead collimator 0.4 cm in diameter, 20 cm in length for the high range detector and 2 cm in diameter, 20 cm in length for the low range detector was shown through a Monte Carlo code, MCNP4 to prevent high range detector saturation and provide enough low range detector response so good statistical data on stack releases result. A lead shield 20 cm thick was shown through MCNP4 to reduce the background radiation interference for both detectors to levels such that the detection of isotopes within the stack effluent is possible as required by the USNRC.
