Abstract

A beamspace-time (BT) receiver is proposed for interference suppression and multipath diversity reception in sectored wireless code division multiple access communications. The scheme involves two stages. First, a set of adaptive space-time diversity processors, in the form of beamformer-correlator pairs, is constructed which provides effective suppression of unwanted interference and reception of signals from a prescribed space-time region. Second, the output data obtained by these processors are maximum ratio combined to capture the signal multipath components coherently. The proposed BT receiver is blind in that no training signal is required. The only information required is the signature sequence, timing and a rough estimate of the angle of arrival of the signal for selecting the sector of interest.
