Spread Spectrum Systems.
Spread Spectrum Systems. A spread spectrum system is an information bearing communications system in which: Information is conveyed by modulation of a carrier by some conventional means, (2) the bandwidth is deliberately widened by means of a spreading function over that which would be needed to transmit the information alone. (In some spread spectrum systems, a portion of the information being conveyed by the system may be contained in the spreading function.)
