A novel “self-decorrelating” technique is proposed to enhance the multipath constructive summation capability and the interference rejection capability of a class of maximum-SINR blind space-time CDMA RAKE receivers designed to tackle the near-far problem. This proposed “self-decorrelating” technique appears to have effectively removed the near-far problem's error floor at high SNR; and the proposed technique can also significant decrease the error rate. Moreover, this “blind” space-time processing receiver architecture needs no prior knowledge nor explicit estimation of (1) the channel's multipath arrival angle or arrival delay or power profile, (2) the receiver's nominal or actual antenna array manifold, and (3) the other CDMA users' signature spreading codes. Preliminary simulations suggest very significant performance improvement realizable from the proposed technique. Though developed for direct-sequence CDMA, the proposed technique might be adopted for frequency-hopping CDMA
