The aim of this paper is to propose an adaptive method for suppressing wideband interferences in spread spectrum (SS) communications. The proposed method is based on the time-frequency representation of the received signal from which the parameters of an adaptive time-varying interference excision filter are estimated. The approach is based on the generalized Wigner-Hough transform as an effective way to estimate the instantaneous frequency of parametric signals embedded in noise. The performance of the proposed approach is evaluated in the presence of linear and sinusoidal FM interferences plus white Gaussian noise in terms of SNR improvement factor and bit error rate (BER).
