The iterative MMSE multiuser detection paradigm is applied to the suppression of cochannel interference in the coded narrowband (multicell) uplink. The equivalent of multiple chips per bit (necessary for MMSE multiuser demodulation) is generated via multisensor reception, the array responses serving as user signatures. This receiver's robustness to overloading allows its sensor count to be much lower than the typical number of other-cell cochannel interferers. A permutation transmit diversity technique that exploits channel time-selectivity is proposed in order to enhance the interuser separation afforded by multisensor reception.
