An Mth order adaptive lattice filter automatically generates all M of the outputs that would be provided by M separate transversal filters. This feature may effectively suppress narrow-band interference (NBI) of either unknown or time-varying bandwidth (or number of frequency bands) in direct-sequence code-division multiple access systems for which the order of the interference rejection filter that achieves the optimal performance is unknown or constantly changing. Moreover, a lattice filter may significantly outperform its transversal counterpart in complex jamming environments in which the adaptive lattice filter must suppress multiple jammers, since each stage of a lattice filter adapts to suppress an orthogonal component of the NBI. The paper develops a computationally efficient and numerically stable adaptive QR-decomposition-based least squares lattice (QRD-LSL)-based nonlinear approximate conditional mean interpolator to suppress NBI effectively. Simulation results demonstrate that both the signal-to-noise ratio improvement and the convergence rate achieved by the proposed interpolators outperform those of other existing prediction-based techniques.
