Cooperation is an attractive approach to improving the spectrum sensing performance of cognitive systems experiencing deep shadowing and fading. In this letter, an efficient weight-based cooperative spectrum sensing scheme is proposed. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme has better accuracy than "AND," "OR," and "half-voting" combination schemes and has similar spectrum sensing accuracy but with lower computational and communication complexity in comparison to the "optimal data fusion" rule.
