This correspondence addresses the problem of nondata-aided
waveform estimation for digital communications. Based on the unconditional
maximum likelihood criterion, the main contribution of this correspondence
is the derivation of a closed-form solution to the waveform estimation
problem in the low signal-to-noise ratio regime. The proposed estimation
method is based on the second-order statistics of the received signal
and a clear link is established between maximum likelihood estimation and
correlation matching techniques. Compression with the signal-subspace is
also proposed to improve the robustness against the noise and to mitigate
the impact of abnormals or outliers.
