We propose a novel dynamic multiple-access (DMA) scheme for application in cognitive radios (CRs). This DMA scheme is implemented by fast frequency hopping with $M$-ary frequency-shift keying (FFH/MFSK) associated with suboptimum noncoherent maximum-likelihood multiuser detection (ML-MUD). In our studies, we assume that the primary users (PUs) and the cognitive radio users (CRUs) are operated in the interweave paradigm. The PUs activate to communicate according to a Poisson process and the duration of an activation obeys exponential distribution. The bit error rate (BER) and throughput performance of the dynamic FFH/MFSK systems are investigated by simulations, when assuming communications over Rayleigh fading channels. Our studies and simulation results demonstrate that the dynamic FFH/MFSK with suboptimum noncoherent ML-MUD constitutes one of the promising candidates for DMA in CRs. It has low-complexity and employs high-flexibility for DMA and seamless transition between different frequency bands.
