In this paper a two-stage channel estimation technique for high rate ultra-wideband communication system is proposed. In the preamble-stage, channel estimation is done using least square approach followed by frequency-domain smoothing operation. Channel estimated at this stage is then windowed by a rectangular window whose length is optimized by the Hannan–Quinn criteria. The channel estimated from the previous stage is further refined by applying time- and frequency-redundancy in a decision-directed manner followed by smoothing and windowing. Link level simulation shows that the two-stage method with fixed window size provides a good estimation performance close to that of the minimum-mean-square-estimation (MMSE) scheme with significant reduction in computational cost.
