This paper presents the performance analysis of compound chaotic sequence (CCS)-based noise reduction differential chaos shift keying (NR-DCSK) system under multipath Rayleigh fading channel conditions. The special characteristics of chaotic sequences are their deterministic randomness behaviour that adds security and multipath immunity to the data when used as a carrier in communication systems. In this paper, the chaotic sequences are generated by combining the outputs of chaotic maps, such as logistic map, Chebyshev map, Bernoulli shift map, tent map, etc., leading to new complex sequences known as CCSs. This sequence possesses more randomness, overcomes severe interference levels encountered during transmission and provides higher multipath immunity compared with those of pseudo-noise (PN) codes. Since NR-DCSK is a spread spectrum technique, its performance in wireless multipath fading channels has important considerations. The CCS is used as a carrier in NR-DCSK systems, which leads to improved bit error rate (BER) performance. Comparisons of simulation results to theoretical BER expressions of additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and Rayleigh fading channels have been carried out to test the efficiency of the proposed CCS-based NR-DCSK system.
