Detailed Description

SNR Estimator using 2nd and 4th-order moments.

An SNR estimator for M-PSK signals that uses 2nd (M2) and 4th (M4) order moments. This estimator uses knowledge of the kurtosis of the signal ( $k_a)$ and noise ( $k_w$) to make its estimation. We use Beaulieu's approximations here to M-PSK signals and AWGN channels such that $k_a=1$ and $k_w=2$. These approximations significantly reduce the complexity of the calculations (and computations) required.
