We consider the problem of joint estimation of direction-of-arrival (DoA), propagation delay, and complex channel gain for antenna-array-based DS/CDMA communication systems over frequency selective multipath channels. We propose a MUSIC-type estimation algorithm which utilizes the spatial smoothing preprocessing technique. The proposed algorithm essentially breaks the multipath-induced coherency within the received signals and recovers the full signal subspace spanned by all dominant signal paths of all users. This allows the use of MUSIC-type DoA and delay estimators for the individual paths of the user of interest. Based on the angle and timing information, we then estimate the multipath fading coefficients. Simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of this approach.
