Abstract : Time-varying linear filtering can be used to generate a broad class of spread spectrum signals which includes Direct Sequence spread spectrum as a special case. The technique is based on a fflter of arbitrary length whose impulse response changes rapidly It can spread the data signal in time as well as in frequency, thereby introducing a form of protection from errors similar to error-correcting coding and interleaving. Time-varying filter (TVF) systems can produce a broad range of noise-like waveforms and can be designed to minimize spillover into adjacent frequency regions. These properties should provide benefits in defense as well as in civilian radio communication systems.
