Summary: 
Improvement of direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) communication systems' performance using a lattice based adaptive infinite impulse response (IIR) notch filter with a simplified adaptation algorithm is presented. The improvement is shown to be achieved by rejection of a narrowband interference in a received DSSS binary phase shift keying (BPSK) signal. Sources of noise generated by an adaptive IIR notch filter are also studied. Apart from noise associated with input additive white gaussian noise, noise attributed to leakage sinusoids due to fluctuation of steady-state variable coefficient is also analysed. Using statistical properties of notch filter and pseudonoise (PN) correlator outputs, improvement of the performance of a DSSS system gained by the use of interference rejection filter is shown. Computer simulation results are used to confirm analytically derived expressions.
