The problem of blind multiuser detection for a DS-CDMA system employing multiple transmit and receive antennae over a fading dispersive channel is considered. Relying upon a well known signal representation, we develop a new family of linear receivers adapted to account for MIMO channels. Linear receivers share the key property of substantial immunity to co-channel interference, without requiring any prior knowledge on the signals to be decoded, except for the spreading sequence. The performance assessment, conducted through semianalytical methods - whenever possible - and validated through Monte Carlo counting techniques, shows that the newly proposed receivers perform pretty close to their non-blind counterparts, which rely on prior knowledge of the spreading codes, symbol timings and channel impulse responses for all of the active users.
