Cyclostationarity is an inherent characteristic of many man-made communication signals, which, if properly recognized, can be exploited for performing various signal-processing tasks. Determining the cyclostationary characteristics of a signal of interest is the first step in the design of signal processing systems exploiting this cyclostationary behaviour. This paper investigates the cyclostationary statistics of various signalling schemes employed in ultra-wideband (UWB) communication systems. Analytical expressions are derived for the cyclic autocorrelation and spectral correlation density functions in the presence of random timing and frequency jitter, which are characterized by discrete-time stationary random processes with known distribution functions.
