The simple method for the bit error probability of UWB-TH PPM multiple access systems is proposed. The multiple access interference is expressed by the characteristic function technique combined with the Gaussian approximation. The analytic results show good agreement with the results from the Monte-Carlo simulation of the system. The proposed expression can be easily modified for the performance analysis of the systems with other modulation schemes such as BPSK and/or the system in the multipath environment.
