This paper presents a channel estimation scheme using a new jammed pilot detection algorithm for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems under narrow-band jamming (NBJ). The jammed pilot subcarrier can be detected and excised by using the proposed algorithm after least squares estimation. The average mean square error (mse) on one OFDM symbol both under a jammed and a removed pilot subcarrier are derived analytically. Moreover, the symbol error rate (SER) performance for the channel estimation scheme using the proposed algorithm is evaluated by simulation. From the results, we can show that the channel estimator with the proposed algorithm improves the mse and SER performances at a low signal-to-jamming ratio.
