Abstract
In this report, an information theoretic criterion based approach for estimating the number of emitters from a set of interleaved pulse trains is proposed. In the approach, a new pluse signal model is formulated to handle large numbers of pulses. The approach is based on the application of the general information criterion (GIC) and has the advantage of not requiring any threshold setting procedures. Compared to the classical information theoretic criterion based approaches, the general information theoretic criteria based approach is more versatile and does not invlve any computationally sophisticated maximum likelihood estimator. Computer simulations are used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
