The impact of imperfect synchronization on the performance of prediction-error interference rejection filters in noncoherent direct-sequence (DS) spread-spectrum communications is considered. Bit-error-rate analysis (BER) analysis (BER) of binary DPSK (differential phase-shift keying) data modulation used in conjunction with direct-sequence spread-spectrum is used as a performance measure. A first-order noncoherent delay-lock loop is used for the pseudonoise (PN) code tracking. Conditional BER results for the DS/DPSK systems for fixed values of the code tracking error are obtained. The average BER of the system is then evaluated by averaging the conditional BER expressions over the probability density function of the code tracking error. Results include the effects of both a single fading tone and a narrowband Gaussian interferer on the overall system performance. Interferer offset frequency is considered in determining the code tracking loop noise as well as the receiver BER
