dc.description.abstract Estimating the carrier frequency from a modulated waveform is one of the most important functions of a coherent signal receiver. Good performance and low bit error rates are obtained by coherent demodulation. Therefore, exact knowledge of the received signal carrier frequency is critical for communication systems. Also due to the spectral crowding, a high probability of channel interference can be observed. Under moderate carrier frequency offsets, data-aided estimators have been developed which have a high accuracy of estimation. However, for high frequency offsets the frequency estimator does not have the information of data or timing. In this thesis we propose a parametric based carrier frequency estimation of GMSK, which has improved performance over ad-hoc methods (delay and multiply) and has high resolution capability. In this thesis three methods are implemented over GMSK data to improve the performance and their results compared with the standard delay and multiply method. Two of these methods are parametric based estimators and one is a fast frequency estimator. Parametric based estimators were chosen partly due to their high resolution capabilities and mainly for their proven performance. Parametric based estimators were seen to have high computational load, and hence an alternate fast frequency estimator was implemented. The tradeoffs involved with respect to computational load and performance were shown. The contributions of this thesis include the verification of the validity of applying a parametric based approach on GMSK data, and compare the performances of parametric methods and fast frequency estimator. It is showii that such an approach has a better performance compared to non-data aided ad-hoc delay. and multiply methods. A closed loop configuration of the open loop parametric methods is suggested in the end. en_US
