We consider the problem of estimating and suppressing many unknown independent and time-varying interferers in a spread-spectrum communication system. The interferers are assumed to be present in a wide frequency range. In order to detect, estimate, and track the interference, we use a bank of hidden Markov model filters operating in the frequency domain. The hidden Markov model filters' outputs are then used to suppress the existing interference. The computational complexity of our scheme is only linear in the number of interferers. The simulation studies show that our proposed novel schemes adapt quickly in tracking the time-varying nature of the interference.
