Generalized Correlation Decomposition-Based Blind Channel Estimation in DS-CDMA Systems With Unknown Wide-Sense Stationary Noise
A new blind subspace-based channel estimation technique is proposed for direct-sequence code-division multiple access (DS-CDMA) systems operating in the presence of unknown wide-sense stationary noise. Unlike most of the blind techniques developed for unknown correlated noise environments so far, the proposed algorithm is applicable to an arbitrary symbol constellation and does not require any auxiliary antennas at the receiver or any prior knowledge of the interfering user spreading codes. Our approach exploits the centro-Hermitian property of the unknown noise covariance matrix and makes use of the generalized correlation decomposition (GCD) to obtain an accurate estimate of the noise subspace and, consequently, of the user-ofinterest channel vector. We also obtain optimal values of the GCD weighting matrices which maximally preserve the orthogonality of the estimated noise subspace to the actual signal subspace in the high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regime. It is shown that such an...
