Ultra-wideband (UWB) communication is a potential technique for future high-speed networks. In this paper, we investigate channel estimation and interference suppression for OFDM based UWB systems. In particular, we modify an existing channel estimation approach for UWB systems and develop an exponential window based approach to estimate correlation of the receive signals for interference suppression. Computer simulation results show that these approaches can be effectively used in OFDM based UWB systems.
