The problem of designing quantizer-detectors whose performance is insensitive to small deviations in noise statistics is considered. The problem is approached on a small -signal asymptotic basis using the Huber-Tukey [1] contaminated density class to model the noise. By applying a formulation originally noted by Martin and Schwartz, it is shown that the proposed robust quantizer has properties exhibited by established robust procedures. As an example, results are presented for the case of contaminated Gaussian noise for various degrees of contamination.
