Spread-spectrum systems have found important commercial applications in CDMA cellular networks and wireless personal communication networks. Communications engineers and technicians now have ready access to a wealth of spread-spectrum information in this exhaustive handbook the most comprehensive and authoritative compendium on spread-spectrum systems available anywhere.
Written by recognized authorities in the field, the Handbook presents both theoretical basics and practical applications, providing succinct, results-oriented solutions to engineering problems. Starting with basic concepts and system models, the book covers:
Anti-jamming communication systems
Coherent direct-sequence systems
Non-coherent frequency-hopped systems
Coherent and differentially coherent modulation techniques
Pseudonoise acquistion and tracking in direct sequence receivers
Time and frequency synchronization of frequency-hopped receivers
Low probability of intercept communications
In addition, it offers an in-depth look at multiple access communications and positioning systems and discusses the growth of spread-spectrum applications.
