Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

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.
