In this paper, we propose a novel estimator for pilot-aided orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) channels in an additive Gaussian and impulsive perturbation environment. Due to sensor failure which might happen because of man-made noise, a number of measurements in high rate communication systems is often corrupted by impulsive noise. High power impulsive noise is generally an obstacle for OFDM systems as valuable information will be completely lost. To overcome this concern, an

The corresponding dual problem of the PANM is then converted to tractable semidefinite programming. It has shown that one can simultaneously estimate the time dispersive channels in a continuous dictionary and the location of impulsive noise using the dual problem. Several numerical experiments are carried out to evaluate the performance of the proposed estimator.
