Title

Performance Metrics for Low Probability of Detection in Cooperative Communication Networks

Abstract

This paper proposes two metrics for evaluating the low probability of detection (LPD) performance in cooperative wireless communication networks. One metric is the distance ration between the minimum range of all the interceptor-relay/transmitter pairs and the intended transmitter-destination distance. Another is the ratio between the average range of all interceptor-relay/transmitter pairs and the intended transmitter-destination distance. The two metrics are compared with the distance ratio defined for the point-to-point communication systems with a simple relay network topology. The results show that the cooperative networks exhibit worse LPD performance than the point-to-point systems when the same receivers are used in both cooperative network and point-to-point system.
