Random communication system based on skewed alpha-stable levy noise shift keying
MetadataShow full item record
The digital communication system is based on the skewed alpha-stable (α-stable) noise sequence which is chosen as the random carrier to modulate the binary message at the transmitter side. Antipodal characteristic of the skew parameter beta (β) is exploited for decoding information at the receiver side to obtain a secure communication system. A fast estimator used in this paper is based on Modified Extreme Value Method (MEVM) to extract the binary message from the signal received through the Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel. Our proposed receiver is achieving better bit error rate (BER) versus Mixed Signal to Noise Ratio (MSNR) than previously introduced receivers which are based on Sinc and Logarithmic estimators. MEVM estimator is indeed less complex compared to the Sinc and Logarithmic estimators and hence more fast. Additionally, the criterion to measure the security level of random communication system, which is based on α-stable noise sequence, has also been introduced.
