  4. Abstract:
  5. Some periodic and quasi-periodic pulse trains are emitted by different sources in the environment and a number of sensors receive them through a single channel simultaneously. We are often interested in separating these pulse trains for source identification at sensors. This identification process is termed as deinterleaving pulse trains. Deinterleaving pulse trains has wide applications in communications, radar systems, neural systems, biomedical engineering, and so on. This paper studies the deinterleaving problem with the assumption that both sources and sensors are fixed. In this study, the problem of deinterleaving pulse trains is modeled as a blind source separation (BSS) problem. To solve the BSS problem, we propose a novel geometry-based producer that has not been discussed in the literature yet. The proposed method has superiority over the previous ones in a number of aspects. First, it is a computationally simple method. Second, the proposed algorithm is capable of deinterleaving similar pulse trains. Third, it is able to separate pulse trains with complex pulse repetition interval (PRI) modulations. Finally, the algorithm's performance is not influenced by missing and spurious pulses. Some numerical simulations are provided in order to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method
