The recent researches on the tracking of binary offset carrier (BOC) modulated signals have been studied focusing onresolving the ambiguity problem caused by the multiple side-peaks in BOC autocorrelation. In this paper, we proposea novel unambiguous BOC tracking scheme with an improved tracking performance by using partial-pulses of BOCsignals. Firstly, we observe that a sub-carrier consists of two partial rectangular pulses referred to as partial-pulses,and then, generate multiple partial-correlations composing the BOC autocorrelation. Finally, a correlation function withno side-peak is constructed by combining the partial-correlations, and then, a delay lock loop employing the proposedunambiguous correlation function adjusts the phase of the local BOC signals. From numerical results, it is confirmedthat the proposed scheme provides a better tracking performance than the conventional schemes in terms of thetracking error standard deviation.
