Abstract:

The vulnerability of spread spectrum waveforms to unintended interception is examined. Optimum and suboptimum intercept receivers are derived for a general class of frequency hop waveforms. Alternative techniques for analyzing the performance of these detectors are presented along with specific examples of calculations. In each case, these alternative techniques are shown to give equivalent results. The discussions are intended to provide some insight into the detection process.
