The methodology for processing grossly undersampled HDD position error signal (PES) is proposed to improve the head-disk contact detection process. The proposed method is a combination of compressive sampling (CS) and adaptive discrete wavelet transform (ADWT) techniques. Here, CS is employed to reconstruct the PES information from very few revolutions of data while ADWT is utilized for extracting head-disk interface (HDI) modulation changes during thermal protrusion of the read/write element.
