In this letter we investigate a communication strategy for digital ultra-wide bandwidth impulse radio, where the separation between the adjacent pulses is chaotic arising from a dynamical system with irregular behavior. A pulse position method is used to modulate binary information onto the carrier. The receiver is synchronized to the chaotic pulse train, thus providing the time reference for information extraction. We characterize the performance of this scheme in terms of error probability versus E/sub b//N/sub 0/ by numerically simulating its operation in the presence of noise and filtering.
