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
