System and Method for Signal Emitter Identification Using Higher-Order Cumulants


A system, method and computer program product for signal emitter identification using Higher-Order Cumulants (HOC) is presented. At least one transient signal is received from an emitter when the emitter turns on. The at least one transient signal is processed using at least one Higher-Order Cumulant (HOC) to provide a set of entries for a vector table. A feature vector is derived from the vector table, the feature vector identifying the emitter. The feature vector is used to identify an emitter.
