RADIO COMMUNICATION AND NAVIGATION IN THE PRESENCE OF LINEARLY DISTRIBUTED NOISE SOURCES

Abstract: This paper compares the regions of operability, as measured by signal-to-interference ratio contours, of radio communication and navigation links operating in the presence of single and linearly distributed arrays of noise sources. The distributed noise sources are, for analytic tractibility, modeled as a finite line source. This yields expressions that not only indicate the relative effectiveness of the distributed interference compared to the single noise source, but also the geometry-dependent factors that govern changes in link performance as the transmitter moves closer to or farther from the distributed sources of interference.
