Misspecified CRB Parameter Estimation for a Coupled Mixture of Polynomial Phase and Sinusoidal FM Signals



This paper studies parameter estimation of a coupled mixture of polynomial phase signal (PPS) and sinusoidal frequency modulated (FM) signal, a newly introduced model motivated by industrial applications. Particularly, we analytically evaluate the estimation performance (or performance loss) via the misspecified Cramer-Rao bound (CRB) when system designers choose existing efficient estimation algorithms designed for an independent (decoupled) mixture model due to hardware limits. Our analysis provides an analytical tool to conveniently evaluate performance loss if the implemented system ignores the coupling effect. The achievability of the misspecified CRB is verified by numerical examples.
