[en] We establish the generalized likelihood ratio (GLR) test for a Gaussian signal of known power spectral shape and unknown rank-one spatial signature in additive white Gaussian noise with an unknown diagonal spatial correlation matrix. This is motivated by spectrum sensing problems in dynamic spectrum access, in which the temporal correlation of the primary signal can be assumed known up to a scaling, and where the noise is due to an uncalibrated receive array. For spatially independent identically distributed (i.i.d.) noise, the corresponding GLR test reduces to a scalar optimization problem, whereas the GLR detector in the general non-i.i.d. case yields a more involved expression, which can be computed via alternating optimization methods. Low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) approximations to the detectors are given, together with an asymptotic analysis showing the influence on detection performance of the signal power spectrum and SNR distribution across antennas. Under spatial rank-P conditions, we show that the rank-one GLR detectors are consistent with a statistical criterion that maximizes the output energy of a beamformer operating on filtered data. Simulation results support our theoretical findings in that exploiting prior knowledge on the signal power spectrum can result in significant performance improvement.
