Abstract

Future digital air/ground communication systems (LDACS) will operate on L-Band where the coexistence with existing legacy systems shall be guaranteed. This paper proposes a scheme to detect and mitigate the JTIDS impulsive interference on LDACS-1 system. The novel idea advised here is the transmission of two copies of the symbols received with interference that are suitably combined at the receiver after a blanking operation of the corrupted samples. In particular two alternatives are presented that differ for the retransmission policy: in the full combining scheme all the symbols are transmitted twice, in the partial combining scheme only the symbols where interference has been detected are retransmitted. These methods permit to efficiently remove the interference without affecting the useful information and exploiting profitably diversity gain against noise introduced by the soft combining approach. The numerical results provided in the paper highlight a good behaviour of the proposed methods and significant advantages in comparison with the traditional blanking method either in terms of Bit Error Rate and Throughput.
