Multiple source location estimation using the EM Algorithm
MetadataShow full item record
We present a computationally efficient scheme for multiple source location estimation based on the EM Algorithm. The proposed scheme is optimal in the sense that it converges iteratively to the exact Maximum Likelihood estimate for all the unknown parameters simultaneously. The method can be applied to a wide range of problems arising in signal and array processing.

Performance bounds on matched-field methods for source localization and estimation of ocean environmental parameters Xu, Wen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-06)Matched-field methods concern estimation of source location and/or ocean environmental parameters by exploiting full wave modeling of acoustic waveguide propagation. Typical estimation performance demonstrates two ...
Feder, Meir; Weinstein, Ehud (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-01)We consider the application of the EM algorithm to the multipath time delay estimation problem. The algorithm is developed for the case of deterministic (known) signals, as well as for the case of wide-sense stationary ...
Geoacoustic inversion in laterally varying shallow-water environments using high-resolution wavenumber estimation Becker, Kyle M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2002-02)Sound propagation in shallow water is highly dependent on the interaction of the sound field with the bottom. In order to fully understand this problem, it is necessary to obtain reliable estimates of bottom geoacoustic ...
