My name is Tommy Royster, and I participated in Clemson's 2001 SURE program. At the time, I was entering my senior year at LSU. Since then, I have graduated from LSU, and I now attend Clemson University as a graduate student in the wireless communication program.
My project involved how signature sequence selection affects acqusition in a Direct-Sequence Spread-Spectrum system. One part of acquisition is synchronization, i.e., when the receiver attempts to "line up" its replica of the spreading sequence to the incoming signal. In this project, I studied the correlation properties of various sequences to determine which ones are better to use. I then compared error probabilites when "good" and "bad" sequences are used in two different synchronization schemes.
My advisor for this project was Dr. Michael Pursley.
