Abstract : It is the object of this invention to transform a communications sequence in a communications system into an analog signal which is spectrally confined to the band available for the transmission within a band limited communications channel without compromising communication accuracy. Another object of this invention is to improve spectral confinement thereby allowing closer channel spacing and better electromagnetic compatibility among radar, navigation, and communications systems. These and other objects are achieved by a communication system using sharply bandlimited signals for sampled data communications wherein a sharply bandlimited waveform is computed for each sample value in a sequence of data samples. Each waveform is centered at a sample point, is weighted by the corresponding data value, and is truncated outside an appropriate time interval. Resulting data-weighted waveforms are summed in the computer for all data samples of the sequence to be communicated, and the result is converted to analog form, up-converted to the desired carrier frequency, and transmitted. Because the signal spectrum is sharply bandlimited, communication channels may be spaced more closely, permitting more channels in the same frequency band.
