Paper Abstract

Spread spectrum modulation techniques such as frequency-hopped code division multiple access (FH-CDMA) are an efficient way to allow multi-user transmission over a limited bandwidth. Recently, there has been a push to increase user capacity over the same bandwidth. In particular, smart antenna arrays have been studied for their capacity gain potential. In this regard, we propose the use of blind signal separation for recovery of signals received through an antenna array. To implement this technique requires the antenna array vectors to be stationary which does not hold in FH-CDMA, so we also propose a new method for frequency compensation. We present the theoretical details of the frequency compensation and compare its performance to no frequency compensation. We then present the blind signal separation algorithm applied to a complex antenna array matrix and complex signals with noise and show in simulation that the blind signal separation works.
