AbstractAn approach is given to the analysis of two-way coherent tracking systems in which the transmitted signals have passed through linear time-varying channels. The specific channel considered is the lognormal fading channel, although the results and techniques can be extended to other channels such as the Rice and Rayleigh channels. The performance of the system is characterized by the steady state probability density function of the reduced phase error process in the second tracking loop. Particular numerical examples and system performance curves are given to illustrate the theory for channel models and two-way systems of practical interest.
