This work presents the performance of the direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DS-SS) parallel acquisition system, previously proposed by the authors (1989, 1990), for nonselective and frequency-selective Rician (i.e. specular plus Rayleigh) fading channels. The acquisition system utilizes a bank of parallel I-Q noncoherent matched filters for the search mode, and a coincidence detector for the verification mode. The probabilities of detection and false alarm are derived and the mean and variance of the acquisition time are evaluated as a measure of the system performance. The nonselective channel is a Rayleigh fast fading channel, while the frequency-selective channel model is the so-called wide sense stationary uncorrelated scattering (WSSUS), selective only on frequency. These channels are typical for aircraft-satellite and line-of-sight (LOS) communications
