This paper details an algorithm for estimating the parameters of cubic phase signals embedded in additive white Gaussian noise. The new algorithm is an extension of the cubic phase (CP) function algorithm, with the extension enabling performance at lower signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). This improvement in the SNR performance is achieved by coherently integrating the CP function over a compact interval in the two-dimensional CP function space. The computation of the new algorithm is quite moderate, especially when compared to the maximum-likelihood (ML) technique. Above threshold, the algorithm's parameter estimates are asymptotically efficient. A threshold analysis of the algorithm is presented and is supported by simulation results. A method for extending the capability of this algorithm to process higher degree phase signals is also presented. Furthermore, the algorithm is applied to a real data signal.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
