A scheme for coarse acquisition of an FH-MFSK spread-spectrum multiple-access system is proposed. Performance curves showing the behaviour of the scheme in terms of false alarm and miss rates are given for a simplified mobile radio transmission model (white Gaussian noise and Rayleigh distributed fading). An optimisation procedure to minimise the acquisition mean time is outlined.
