In this paper, the performance of Prerake DS UWB multiple access system under imperfect channel estimation is studied. The signal model of the system is derived in matrix form, which clearly shows the components of inter-chip interference, inter-symbol interference and multiple access interference. The BER formula is derived based on this signal model and validated by simulations. We highlight that the BER performance does not monotonically decrease with the growth of data rate under imperfect channel estimation. The effect of imperfect channel estimation in different cases is also discussed.
