Analysis on Wavelet Threshold Extracting Weak Signal in Deep Space Communication
Abstract— The extremely long distance of deep space communication brings about the tough challenge that the received signal is weak. In order to overcome the problem of low signal to noise ratio (SNR) at the lowest price, we extract weak signal by means of wavelet thresholding method, in which the weak signal energy can be gathered in a few of sparse wavelet transform coefficients, and the energy of noise will spread to all the coefficients, which means that the output carrier-to-noise-ratio (CNR) can be effectively improved by wavelet thresholding. Additionally, the influence of the wavelet decomposition level on the output CNR and the correlation coefficient of the real signal and estimated signal is extensively discussed by computer simulations. Based on the discussions, we give the suggestions on practical applications of wavelet thresholding method.
