In this paper the problem of impulsive noise suppression in analog communication systems is considered. The problem of demodulation of amplitude and phase modulated signals in the presence of impulsive noise is formulated by introducing a binary random process to indicate the presence of impulsive noise. It is shown that sub-optimal receiver structures can be derived using this model and these are similar to some experimental receivers reported earlier in the literature. The receivers derived are non-linear in nature and their working is demonstrated through digital computer simulations.
