AbstractOFDM is a preferred physical layer for an increasing number of telemetry and LAN applications. However, joint estimation of the multipath channel and frequency offset in OFDM remains a challenging problem. The Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) is presented to solve the offset/channel tracking problem. The advantages of the UKF are that it is less susceptible to divergence than the EKF, and does not require computation of a Jacobian matrix. A hybrid analysis/simulation approach is developed to rapidly evaluate UKF performance in terms of symbol-error rate and channel/offset error for the 802.11a OFDM format.
