Abstract—The Dual-Sequence-Frequency-Hopping (DSFH) communication system based on software defined radio (SDR) system belongs to the field of information and communication security of software engineering. At very low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), which is lower than -10dB, the DSFH fails to synchronize. Synchronization acquisition method via a combined multi-signal detection (SAMCMD) is proposed. The feature of a short sequence of frequency hopping (FH) frequency point is utilized to express the information of the time of date (TOD), and the time accumulation of several FH signals is used to extend the detection time. This method can not only be appropriate for DSFH but also greatly improve the synchronization performance at low SNR. Explain the principle and structure of the SAMCMD. And obtain the performance of this method of the SDR synchronization acquisition. The conclusions are as below: 1) the longer detection time is, the better the anti-jamming performance of SAMCMD is; 2) SAMCMD can gain about 22.5dB-24dB when the SNR is -20dB and the acquisition probability requirement is 96.31% due to the extension of the detection time, compared with the traditional FH synchronization acquisition method.

Index Terms—Dual sequence, frequency hopping, Low signal to noise ratio, synchronization acquisition, software defined.
