Abstract
We provide a common framework for the measurement problem for radar, sonar, and quantum mechanics by casting them in the common language of quantum mechanics as a Rigged Hilbert Space. This language reveals a more detailed understanding of the underlying interactions of a return signal that are not usually brought out by standard signal processing design techniques. It also provides a means to "post-select" the return signal so the receiver design for radars can be optimized for either a single or multiple operators. Thus, detector design can be optimized for signal interaction with objects, so the algorithm provides a solution to receiver design for general types of interactions.
