One of the major drawbacks of the conventional Differential Chaos Shift Keying (DCSK) system is the addition of channel noise to both the reference signal and the data bearing signal, which deteriorates its performance. In this paper, we propose a noise reduction DCSK (NR-DCSK) system as a solution to reduce the noise variance present in the received signal in order to improve performance. For each transmitted bit, instead of generating different B chaotic samples to be used as a reference sequence, B/P chaotic samples are generated and then duplicated P times in the signal. At the receiver, each P identical samples are averaged and the resultant filtered signal is correlated to its time delayed replica to recover the transmitted bit. This averaging operation of size P reduces the noise variance and enhances the performance of the system. Theoretical bit error rate expressions for AWGN and multipath fading channels are analytically studied and derived. Computer simulation results are compared to relevant theoretical findings to validate the accuracy of the proposed system and to demonstrate the performance improvement compared to the conventional DCSK, the Improved DCSK (I-DCSK) and the Differential Phase Shift Keying (DPSK) systems.
