Exact error probabilities are given for a binary phase-shift-keyed (PSK) signal which is transmitted over a nondistorting channel, but additively corrupted by Gaussian noise and cochannel interference. Both coherent detection and quasicoherent (noisy reference) detection are considered. The analysis admits a wide class of interferences, but numerical results are limited to interferences modeled by a sum of randomly phased sinusoids. This includes most extraneous analog frequencymodulation (FM), phase-modulation (PM), or digital PSK signals, or combinations of the same which are cochannel with the desired PSK signal.
