In this paper, we propose a novel unambiguous correlation function for binary offset carrier (BOC) signal acquisition. Specifically, we first find out that the side-peaks arise due to the fact that the BOC autocorrelation is the sum of the irregularly shaped BOC sub-correlations, and then, propose an unambiguous correlation function with no side-peak by combining the sub-correlations. The proposed scheme is shown to remove the side-peaks completely for any type of BOC signal and to provide a better acquisition performance than the conventional correlation functions.
