Strong directional interference can prevent code acquisition in a direct-sequence system, thereby rendering the system inoperable. This paper presents a computationally simple adaptive-array algorithm that cancels directional interference prior to code acquisition when the direction of arrival of the desired signal is unknown, no pilot symbols are available, and long spreading sequences must be accommodated. The preacquisition algorithm is shown to dramatically reduce the interference level relative to that of a desired direct-sequence signal before code acquisition has been achieved. As a result, the code acquisition process is greatly facilitated.
