  • Patent number: 5091917
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for associating received pulses with one of a plurality of emitters emitting pulses at periodic intervals. Periodic pulse trains are detected by computing the difference in arrival times between each received pulse and a fixed number of previously received pulses. In the simplest embodiment, a periodic pulse train is detected when one of the computed differences is one-half of another computed difference. In other embodiments, further processing is performed to detect staggered pulse trains or other periodic patterns.
