Information

The exam is closed-book.

Part A has seven questions totalling 70 marks. You must answer all of them.

Part B has three questions. You must choose two of them, to make up a further 30 marks.

A formula sheet for the radar section is attached to the end of this paper.

signals:

(b) Explain the role of a point-spread function (PSF) in the image formation process, and

describe how 2-D convolution plays a role. How does the PSF change as the imaging

system is defocused? Finally, what is the MTF, and how does it change with defocus?

(5 marks)

(c) Describe how you would go about detecting vertical edges (like the edges of buildings)

in an image. Describe the role of 2-D convolution (or filtering) in the process, and

discuss the choice of filter parameters. How would you reduce the effects of noise in

the edge detection process?

2. Speech processing

(a) What information is contained in a speech signal? List at least 3 kinds of information.

(2 marks)

(b) What are some of the techniques or methods that are used to extract the information from

the speech signal?

(2 marks)

(c) A spectrogram can be used to ’visualize’ the speech signal.

i. How is the spectrogram constructed? (1 mark)

ii. How many dimensions are shown in the spectrogram? (1 mark)

iii. What are the dimensions of the spectrogram? (1 mark)

speech codecs, What are the three major weaknesses of the LPC vocoders?

chain, (ii) receiver with an I-Q down converter (iii) appropriate sampling into a digital

signal processor.

(c) Illustrate with the aid of sketches of the frequency spectra, how the signals in the system

are related, particularly

i. the impulse response of the scene .t / $ .f /

ii. the baseband form p.t / $ P .f / and the transmitted rf pulse vtx .t / $ Vtx .f /

iii. the complex baseband signal vbb .t / $ Vbb .f /.

(3 marks)

(d) A digital signal processing algorithm must be developed for pulse compression and display

of the received echoes. The transmitted pulse is a chirp pulse with bandwidth of 150 MHz.

What digital signal processing steps would you apply to obtain a focussed image of the

scene, considering that you would like to optimise signal to noise ratio and keep the

sidelobes low? The processor operates on the complex baseband received signal. Sketch

the point target response at the output of your processor.

monochrome pulse?
