Description This paper presents issues related to the discrete time–frequency matched filter which correlates two discrete TFDs (Additional details can be found in the comprehensive book on Time-Frequency Signal Analysis and Processing (see In addition, the most recent upgrade of the original software package that calculates Time-Frequency Distributions and Instantaneous Frequency estimators can be downloaded from the web site: This was the first software developed in the field, and it was first released publicly in 1987 at the 1st ISSPA conference held in Brisbane, Australia, and then continuously updated).en_US
Abstract The discrete time-frequency matched filter should replicate the continuoustime-frequency matched filter, but the methods differ. To avoid aliasing, thediscrete method transforms the real-valued signal to the complex-valued analytic signal. The theory for the time-frequency matched filter does not consider the discrete case using the analytic signal. The authors find that theperformance of the matched filter degrades when using the analytic, rather than real-valued, signal. This performance degradation is dependent on thesignal-to-noise ratio and the signal type. In addition, the authors present a simple algorithm to efficiently compute the time-frequency matched filter. Thealgorithm with the real-valued signal, comparative to using the analytic signal, requires one-quarter of the computational load. Hence the real-valued signal -and not the analytic signal - enables an accurate and efficient implementationof the time-frequency matched filter.en_US
