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.
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.
Anamorphic Preclinical SPECT Imaging with High-Resolution Silicon Double-Sided Strip DetectorsDurko, Heather Lynn (The University of Arizona., 2014)Preclinical single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is an essential tool for studying progression, response to treatment, and physiological changes in small animal models of human disease. The wide range of imaging applications is often limited by the static design of many preclinical SPECT systems. We have developed a prototype imaging system that replaces the standard static pinhole aperture with two sets of movable, keel-edged copper-tungsten blades configured as crossed (skewed) slits. These apertures can be positioned independently between the object and detector, producing an anamorphic image in which the axial and transaxial magnications are not constrained to be equal. We incorporated a 60 mm x 60 mm, millimeter-thick megapixel silicon double-sided strip detector that permits ultrahigh-resolution imaging. While the stopping power of silicon is low for many common clinical radioisotopes, its performance is sufficient in the range of 20-60 keV to allow practical imaging experiments. The low-energy emissions of ¹²⁵I fall within this energy window, and the 60-day half life provides an advantage for longitudinal studies. The flexible nature of this system allows the future application of adaptive imaging techniques. We have demonstrated ~225-μm axial and ~175-μm transaxial resolution across a 2.65 cm³ cylindrical field of view, as well as the capability for simultaneous multi-isotope acquisitions. We describe the key advancements that have made this system operational, including bringing up a new detector readout ASIC, development of detector control software and data-processing algorithms, and characterization of operating characteristics. We describe design and fabrication of the adjustable slit aperture platform, as well as the development of an accurate imaging forward model and its application in a novel geometric calibration technique and a GPU-based ultrahigh-resolution reconstruction code.
