Modulation scheme determination through use of multiple sensors

Patent image
ACERDEC

Various embodiments associated with multiple signal editions is described. A plurality of sensors can be deployed in an environment. These sensors can be used to capture a signal of interest (SOI). However, when the signal is weak or difficult to sense, what an individual sensor captures may be of little value. Therefore, multiple sensors can be used together to capture the signal (e.g., different editions of the SOI). Further, it is possible that the demodulation scheme of the signal is not known, such as when the signal is from an unknown network (e.g., a network of an enemy). A mathematical operation can be performed upon signal editions such that a result does not include noise. This result can be used in determining the demodulation scheme of the signal.
