The rapid growth in wireless communication technology has led to a scarcity of spectrum. But, studies are saying that licensed spectrum is underutilized. Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs) seem to be a promising solution to this problem by allowing unlicensed users to access the unused spectrum opportunistically. In this paper we proposed a novel spectrum sensing algorithm to improve the probabilities of detection and false alarm in a CRN, using the traditional techniques of energy and first order correlation detection. Results show a significant improvement in performance in cooperative spectrum sensing.
