A channelized microscan receiver is used for signal detection and frequency estimation. Its detection performance is theoretically analyzed and is illustrated by presenting its receiver operating characteristics (ROC). The obtained results are compared to that of a wideband radiometer, under the conditions of low input signal-to-noise ratio. The system parameters necessary for frequency estimation within a desired frequency band are determined.
