Summary: 
In this paper, the authors derived the distributions of the probability of detection and of false alarm in function of the decision threshold. An Optimized Threshold Decision (OTD) algorithm was proposed to decide the optimal threshold for reaching the best system performance in a given known channel noise. By applying this OTD algorithm, the multiple access capacity can thus be maximized.
