- The authors are sometimes presented with data with serious flaws, like saturation, over-range, zero shifts, and impulsive noise, including much of the available pyrotechnic data. Obviously, these data should not be used if at all possible. However, they are sometimes forced to use these data as the only data available. A method to salvage these data using wavelets is discussed. The results must be accepted with the understanding that the answers are credible, not necessarily correct. None of the methods will recover information lost due to saturation and over-range with the subsequent nonlinear behavior of the data acquisition system. The results are illustrated using analytical examples and flawed pyrotechnic data.
