In this letter, a robust pilot-assisted synchronization scheme is proposed for estimation of residual frequency offset (RFO) in OFDM-based digital radio mondiale (DRM) system. The RFO estimator uses the gain reference pilots mainly reserved for the channel tracking in the DRM standard. To demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed RFO estimator, comparisons are made with the conventional RFO estimator using the frequency reference pilots in terms of mean square error (MSE) performance.
