In this paper, we propose a correlation function using newly designed local signals for cosine-phased binary offset carrier (BOC) signal tracking. First, we divide a sub-carrier pulse over one pseudo random noise code period into multiple rectangular pulses, and subsequently, design novel local signals. Then, we obtain a correlation function with no side-peak based on a combination of correlations between the newly generated local signals and received cosine-phased BOC signal. From numerical results, it is confirmed that the proposed correlation function provides a tracking performance improvement over the conventional correlation functions in terms of the tracking error standard deviation.
