AbstractThe performance of novel experimental blind equalizers suitable for a large class of applications including telemetry systems and other wireless applications is described. Experimental hardware research of these adaptive patent pending Feher Equalizers (FE) confirms computer simulated data . A two-ray RF selective faded telemetry channel has been simulated. A dynamically changing channel environment with a selective fade rate in the 1Hz to 50Hz range has been constructed by laboratory hardware. The Test and Evaluation (T&E) setup had RF frequency selective dynamic notch depth variations in the Power Spectral Density (PSD) within the band of the signal of up to 15dB. As an illustrative example of the adaptive equalizer capability we used a 1Mb/s rate Feher patented FQPSK  Commercially Of The Shelf (COTS) product. Both hardware experimental results as well as simulation indicate substantial performance improvement with the utilization of the FE. It is demonstrated that the FE improves for a large class of frequency selective faded systems the Bit Error Rate(BER) from 10^-2 to 10^-6. Similar performance improvements are presented for the Block Error Rate (BLER).
