The performance of multiantenna receivers in cochannel interference is investigated for narrowband links in a non-line-of-sight mobile-to-mobile channel. Channel impairments include Doppler spread and angular spread originating from scatterers in the vicinity of both the transmitter and the receiver. The analysis employs a two-ring scattering model and compares the performance of a sectored system employing selection combining (SC) to the performance of adaptive arrays implemented with both omnidirectional antennas and sectored antennas. Performance is estimated for environments with cochannel interference and is measured in terms of output signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR). An ensemble of random scattering realizations is utilized in the analysis to estimate the average output SINR. The results demonstrate the improved performance offered by adaptive arrays over sectored systems with SC. Configurations involving both SC and adaptive array processing were also evaluated and found to yield improvements over conventional adaptive array architectures.
