An Improved Approach to Man-Made Noise Measurement Techniques 780659
Nonpredictable responses to certain kinds of noise have been revealed as a result of past analyses of receiver noise responses. It seemed that certain types of noise were not susceptible of classification as either white Gaussian or impulsive, but rather that some intermediate classification was necessary.
The development of an improved measurement technique of man-made noise sources was then undertaken. These techniques would then be applied in the measurement of noise radiated by several commonly found man-made sources.
The measurement technique developed consists of displaying the noise power spectra in incremented bandwidths on a spectrum analyzer. Ten different sources were measured and the bandwidth factors recorded.
