An asynchronous, multicarrier direct-sequence code-division multiple-access (DS-CDMA) array receiver is proposed based upon blind, composite channel vector estimation. Due to the fact that the combined effect of all received paths is estimated, the total number of paths can be greater than the number of antennas in the receiver array. Furthermore, the proposed approach is not limited by multipath coherency. The receiver is classified as an interference cancelling zero-forcing receiver, and multicarrier operation in a frequency-selective channel means that its performance can exceed that of a single-carrier array DS-CDMA. The effectiveness of the proposed approach, even in the presence of strong interference, is demonstrated by computer simulation studies.
