In this paper, compressive detection strategies for FHSS signals are introduced. Rapid switching of the carrier frequency among many channels using a pseudorandom sequence makes detection of FHSS signals challenging. The conventional approach to detect these signals is to rapidly scan small segments of the spectrum sequentially. However, such a scanner has the inherent risk of never overlapping with the transmitted signal depending on factors such as rate of hopping and scanning. In this paper, we propose compressive detection strategies that sample the full spectrum in a compressive manner. Theory and simulations are presented to illustrate the benefits of the proposed framework.
