The performance of spectrum sensing in cognitive radio can be improved by employing multiple antennas. In this letter, the effect of antenna correlation on the performance improvement by deploying multiple antennas in the sensing node of the secondary system is investigated. It is proved mathematically that in the regime of low SNR, with antenna correlation, the secondary sensing node can achieve almost the same performance improvement as that without correlation. Simulation results verify the conclusions.
