Chaotic signals are widely exploited for the spread spectrum communication technique. Synchronization of a chaotic communication systems between a single point and multiple points is recognized as an essential issue. In this paper, a chaotic network synchronization scheme is proposed to tackle the problem of multi-access synchronization. The proposed synchronization scheme enables the realization of a fast synchronization of multiple chaotic systems. In this paper, the proposed system is validated by application to direct-sequence (DS) spread spectrum communication (SSC) with code division multiple access (CDMA). Promising results were obtained on the applications of speech, characters and image communications. The obtained results indicate that the proposed SSC is effective and reliable even under the situations of a noisy channel, and multi-path interference.
