Open Access research that helps to deliver "better medicines"...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), a major research centre in Scotland and amongst the UK's top schools of pharmacy.

Research at SIPBS includes the "New medicines", "Better medicines" and "Better use of medicines" research groups. Together their research explores multidisciplinary approaches to improve understanding of fundamental bioscience and identify novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions, investigation of the development and manufacture of drug substances and products, and harnessing Scotland's rich health informatics datasets to inform stratified medicine approaches and investigate the impact of public health interventions.

Abstract

In this paper a multi-static ambiguity function (AF) based on the Kullback directed divergence (KDD) and a distributed multiple-input and multiple-output radar system (DMRS) framework is introduced. Additionally a mathematical analysis is used to derive the AF in terms of signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) and matched filter outputs. This method manages to extract an upper bound and properly define an AF bounded from 0 to 1. Moreover, this method leads in avoidance of large matrices inversions allowing less complex and more accurate computations. Finally the performance of the proposed method in localisation problems is assessed by comparing the proposed AF with the squared summation of the matched filter outputs at each receiver at different SNR scenarios.
