Abstract

An important problem in sensor array processing is the estimation of the number of transmitted signals. Most of the proposed solutions rely on the assumption of uniform additive white noise on the measured signals. In this paper, an approach for estimating the number of sources in the presence of nonuniform white noise is proposed. The method is based on the computation of the maximal corank of the covariance matrix of the noisy data in the Frisch scheme context. The effectiveness of the method is tested by means of Monte Carlo simulations.
