In this paper a cooperative spectrum sensing system based on IEEE 802. 22 standard is proposed and modeled as cooperative game theory scheme. The proposed method considers each secondary user as a single sensing terminal that implies energy detection as spectrum sensing method with different signal to noise ratios (SNR's) to estimate the existence of TV stations. The final decision of TV stations existence is made by fusion center after receiving each secondary user decision. The secondary users will form coalitions to make the final decision of the fusion more accurate. The cooperative game theory that proposed in this paper is based on AND, OR and majority rule for coalitions.
