Ultra Wide-band is a promising technology for future short-range wireless communications with high data rate. In generally, one of the biggest difficult tasks for researchers today is the acquisition task of signals, where they are looking through different tools for getting a good quality of transmission; the phenomenon of multipath always stands up in the front as the first problem to be faced. When we talk about the Ultra Wide Band (UWB) signals, the problem becomes more complicated due to ultrashort impulses duration used by this kind of signals that causes the generation of paths by huge numbers. In this thesis, to address the task mentioned above, the study is subdivided into two aspects. The first one is the UWB channel estimation that we have done to have information about the amplitudes and the delays of the paths. For this purpose, a maximum likelihood method is used to find the amplitudes and the delays estimate using two estimation contexts: Data Aided (DA) and Non-Data-Aided (NDA). In the second aspect, various parameters affecting the acquisition of signals are evaluated. Furthermore, several contributions in the framework of a new strategy based on an Intelligent Controlling System (ICS) are done and detailed in this thesis for the first once. This system is characterised by its flexibility through two techniques, one that allows to users to communicate even with different M-ary PPM levels at the same time. Another technique that gives the flexibility for dealing with the phenomenon of multipath, where this latter is combated through manipulating the modulation’s levels via the ICS to achieve a rapid acquisition of UWB signals.
