In this paper, we propose an unambiguous binary offset carrier (BOC) correlation function with narrow main-peak width for BOC code tracking. Specifically, we first separate a subcarrier pulse into two rectangular pulses, obtain the associated partial correlations, and re-combine the partial correlations to yield the unambiguous correlation function with narrow main-peak width. From numerical results, it is demonstrated that the proposed correlation function provides a significant performance improvement over the conventional correlation functions.
