Synchronisation of alpha-stable levy noise-based Random Communication System
In this study, the pilot-assisted synchronisation method for a random communication system (RCS) has been proposed. The pilot symbol, which has alpha-stable distribution, has been used to establish synchronisation and to maintain covertness in the RCS. The introduced synchronisation block (SB) consists of fractional lower-order covariance-based correlators (FLOCCs), threshold detectors (TDs) and the synchronisation control block. To measure the performance of the proposed SB, the performance criterion, i.e. confidence ratio (CR), has been proposed. The reliability of the proposed SB can be enhanced by altering the CR and the achieved CR by using the FLOCCs and TDs in SB.
