In this paper, error probability analyses are performed for a binary frequency-shift-keying (BFSK) system employing hop/bit frequency-hopping (FH) spread-spectrum waveforms transmitted over a partial-band Gaussian noise jamming channel. The error probabilities for the hop/bit BFSK/FH systems are obtained as the performance measure of the square-law linear combining soft decision receiver under the assumption of the worst-case partial-band jamming. The receiver in our analysis assumes no knowledge of jamming state (side information). Both exact and approximate (multiple bound-parameter Chernoff bound) solutions are obtained under two separate assumptions: with and without the system's thermal noise in the analyses. Numerical results of the error rates are graphically displayed as a function of signal-to-jamming power ratio with and signal-to-noise ratio as parameters. All of our results, exact and approximate, indicated that the higher number of hops per bit produced higher error probabilities as a result of increased combining losses when the square-law linear combining soft decision receiver is employed in demodulating the multihop-per-bit waveform.
