carrier

n. in general, any person or business which transports property or people by any means of conveyance (truck, auto, taxi, bus, airplane, railroad, ship), almost always for a charge. The carrier is the transportation system and not the owner or operator of the system. There are two types of carriers: common carrier (in the regular business or a public utility of transportation) and a private carrier (a party not in the business, but agrees to make a delivery or carry a passenger in a specific instance). Regular transportation systems are regulated by states and by the Interstate Commerce Commission if they cross state lines. (See: common carrier, private carrier)

To provide management of ECM resources against threat radars on the basis of carrier frequency, the system must detect, separate and identify all signals impinging on the antenna of the receiver assoicated with the ECM system; as we will indicate later, this is a formidable requirement because of the large number of signals expected in most engagements.

In conventional digital radio broadcasting receivers, delays are associated with frequency tuning due to several synchronization steps, such as signal detection, symbol timing synchronization, frame synchronization, and carrier frequency offset and sampling frequency offset compensation [8].
