Researchers at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique examine detection algorithms and their implementations for wideband cognitive radio networks using Nutaq’s PicoSDR platform.

Some of the presented findings include:

  • Comparison of algorithm performance with and without performing calibration of the Nutaq PicoSDR platform.
  • Evaluation of the robustness of the considered detection algorithms against noise variance uncertainty and study of the SNR wall.  
  • Impact of carrier frequency offset and a moderate interference signal
