CIMM DEFINITION: A type of technological technique where an electrical, electromagnetic, or acoustic signal, for example, is generated in a particular bandwidth and deliberately spread in the frequency domain. This results in a signal that has a wider bandwidth. These techniques are used for a variety of reasons, including the establishment of secure communications, increasing resistance to natural interference, noise and jamming, to prevent detection, and to limit power flux density (e.g. in satellite downlinks).
