AbstractSimulation results are presented for the error rate performance of the recursive digital MAP detector for known M-ary signals in multiplicative and additive Gaussian noise. The structure of the digital simulation of the innovative receiver, operating in a multipath environment, is generally described. Specific results are given for a quaternary signal, of the type used in air-ground data links, with 2500 symbol per second transmission rate. Plots of detection error rate versus additive signal to noise ratio are given, with multipath interference strength as a parameter. For comparison, the error rates of conventional coherent and noncoherent digital MAP detectors are simultaneously simulated and graphed. It is shown that with non-zero multiplicative noise, the error rates of the conventional detectors saturate at an irreducible level as additive signal to noise ratio increases. The error rate for the innovative detector continues to decrease rapidly with increasing additive signal to noise ratio. In the absence of multiplicative interference, the conventional coherent detector and the innovative detector are shown to exhibit identical performance.
