Packet throughput figures are obtained for direct sequence spread spectrum multiple access (DS/SSMA) slotted ALOHA radio systems where all users employ random signature sequences from bit-to-bit within all transmitted packets. These calculations use an improved Gaussian approximation technique which gives accurate bit error probabilities and also incorporates the effect of bit-to-bit error dependence within each packet in the multiaccess interference environment. Numerical results are given for packets which employ varying amounts of block error control, and a comparison is made with results obtained by other methods which ignore the effects of bit-to-bit error dependence within each packet in the multiaccess interference environment. Numerical results are given for packets which employ varying amount of block error control, and a comparison is made with results obtained by other methods which ignore the effects of bit-to-bit error and/or employ less-accurate Gaussian approximations to the probability of data bit error. Maximum throughput per unit bandwidth figures are calculated which compare favorably to similar figures for narrowband signaling techniques
