The composite effect of hostile multitone jamming and partial-band noise jamming on bit-error rate (BER) performance of a fast frequency-hopped M-ary frequency-shift-keying system is studied over Rayleigh fading channels in the presence of timing and frequency offsets. The maximum-likelihood (ML) diversity-combining method is employed to improve BER performance of the system. Analytical BER expression of the proposed ML receiver is derived. The analytical results, validated by computer simulation, show that the proposed ML receiver can suppress the composite hostile jamming more effectively than some existing conventional diversity-combining receivers. The ML receiver is also found to be robust against inaccurate estimation of the required side information.
