In the first part of the paper, the capacity of a general multiuser code division multiple access (CDMA) jamming channel was analyzed for noncooperative and cooperative users in uplink and downlink static and Nakagami fading channels when the receiver has or lacks jammer state information. The results were applied to a unified channel model encompassing a variety of multiuser spread spectrum systems contaminated by jamming. It was found that the jammer should spread its energy evenly over all degrees of freedom in order to minimize the average capacity. In the second part of the paper, using a standard orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) model, the performance of a coded version of a multicarrier frequency-hopping (MC-FH) CDMA system in static and Rayleigh fading jamming uplink channels is analyzed. The MC-FH system under study is a hybrid of the OFDM and frequency hopping concepts, and is also a practical example of the model developed in the first part. It is demonstrated that in the cases where the receiver knows the jammer state and the receiver lacks the jammer state, spreading and contracting the jamming power over the system bandwidth, respectively, will give rise to the worst performance for the communicators. Optimal decorrelator weights for the receiver soft outputs in different channels, valuable for practical system design, are also obtained.
