Frame Synchronization Techniques for iNET-Formatted SOQPSK-TG Communications In this thesis, frame synchronization for iNET formatted SOQPSK-TG communications is considered. Frame synchronization for M-ary linear modulations (MQAM, MPSK, etc.) are known in the literature using pilot detection methods, but are based on a signal model that does not apply to SOQPSK-TG. Maximum likelihood frame synchronizers are derived for an SOQPSK-TG system following assumptions found in the literature. The

The analysis shows that a reinterpretation of known detectors operating on the samples of the received waveform and locally stored samples of the pilot is the optimum approach for this case. Simulation results for an AWGN channel and several multipath channels verify the performance of the synchronizers.
