Energy detection (ED) represents a low complexity approach used by secondary users (SU) to sense spectrum occupancy by primary users (PU) in cognitive radio (CR) systems. In this paper, we present a new algorithm that senses the spectrum occupancy by performing ED in K consecutive sensing time slots starting from the current slot and continuing by alternating before and after the current slot. We consider a PU traffic model specified in terms of an average duty cycle value, and derive analytical expressions for the false alarm probability (FAP) and correct detection probability (CDP) for any value of K . Our analysis is corroborated with numerical results in which Monte-Carlo simulations are used to determine FAP and CDP to confirm the validity of the analytical expressions obtained and to illustrate that good receiver operating characteristic (ROC) performance is reached for reasonably small values of K .
