Generalized energy detection (GED) is analytically studied when operates under fast-faded channels and in the presence of generalized noise. For the first time, the McLeish distribution is used to model the underlying noise, which is suitable for both non-Gaussian (impulsive) as well as classical Gaussian noise channels. Important performance metrics are presented in closed forms, such as the false-Alarm and detection probabilities as well as the decision threshold. Analytical and simulation results are cross-compared validating the accuracy of the proposed approach in the entire signal-To-noise ratio regime. Finally, useful outcomes are extracted with respect to GED system settings under versatile noise environments and when noise uncertainty is present.
