Spread Spectrum: An Annotated Bibliography

Eldon J. Haakinson

Abstract: Spread spectrum (SS) systems either are being planned or are already operational in the communications, radar, and navigation services. Since SS systems tend to increase the efficient use of the increasingly congested radio spectrum, spectrum managers and planners need to be aware of SS systems' capabilities, techniques, and limitations. Particular interest is given to applciation of broad spectrum to local land mobile radio service. In order that knowledge gained an=bout SS in other radio services can be transferred to land mobile radio, a search was made of current articles in the current open literature to produce an annotated bibliography. The bibliography has been arranged into several major groupings: 1) Tutorial, 2) Applications, 3) Interface Rejection, 4) Spread Spectrum Systems Studies, 5) Multipath Propagation, 6) Direct Sequence/Frequency Hopping/Chirp Techniques, 7) Modulation/Demodulation, 8) Synchronization/Tracking, and 9) Codes for Broad Spectrum.
