Ultra wide band (UWB) impulse radio (IR) technology has different applications in different sectors such as short range radios and collision avoidance radar. A strong signal denoising method is needed for UWB-IR signal detection. One of the challenges of UWB-IR signal detection technique is the environmental interferences and noises. Wavelet Packet Transform (WPT) based multi-resolution analysis technique is suitable for this kind of signal denoising and detection. The paper describes a better method of denoising and detection technique of UWB-IR signal based on calculation of energies of the coefficients of each WPT terminal-node and by using an improved threshold calculation technique. The proposed technique is investigated through both simulation and experimentation.
