The objective of this thesis is to determine the average probability of bit error of an asynchronous, noncoherent, direct-sequence, code-division multiple-access (CDMA) system using wideband M-ary FSK as bandpass modulation. The immediate analysis and determination of the average probability of bit error is made inherently more difficult because of two random effects. The first disturbance encountered in the analysis is the existence of additive, white, Gaussian noise and multi-user noise. The second disturbance, which is more difficult to analyze, is the effect of multipath fading, which is caused by reflections of the transmitted signal through the propagating medium to the receiver.
