In this paper, error probability analyses are performed for a binary frequency-shift-keying (BFSK) system employing L hop/bit frequency-hopping (FH) spread-spectrum waveforms transmitted over a partial-band Gaussian noise jamming channel. The performance results for two types of square-law nonlinear combining soft decision receivers under worst-case partial-band jamming are presented. The receivers employ, prior to combining, nonlinear weighting strategies of 1) adaptive gain control and 2) soft limiting (clipping) of the detector output of each channel of the dehopped waveform. Both thermal noise and jamming are included in the analyses. It is shown in the paper that a diversity gain for error rate improvement is realizable for nonlinear combining receivers provided that the noncoherent combining loss is less dominant than the jamming power reduction realized by the weighting strategy. Performance comparisons between linear and nonlinear combining receivers are presented.
