Abstract

The variable dwell time (VDT) acquisition algorithm has been proposed to reduce the mean acquisition time of a PN waveform. Previous analyses pertaining to VDT systems have used either approximation methods or simulations to evaluate related system performance parameters, namely, P//D, P//F//A and n-bar, the mean dwell time per cell. Two related algorithms to compute these parameters are presented. Exact results are obtained by these algorithms, and P//F//A and n-bar can be evaluated more efficiently.
