Abstract
Kuma Signals proposes to prototype and test the Dillo fractional bit mapping framework investigated in the Phase I work plan. The Dillo system is designed to enable orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) in high Doppler, low SNR, long delay spread environments with impulsive noise. The framework utilizes an innovative holistic approach to the physical layer design, focusing on cancellation of inter-carrier interference combined with powerful channel coding and adaptive spreading for peak-to-average power ratio reduction.
