Adaptive array processing for multipath fading mitigation via exploitation of filter banks.

In this paper, we propose subband adaptive array processing for mitigation of both intersymbol interference (ISI) and cochannel interference (CCI) in digital mobile communications. Subband adaptive array processing employs filter banks in a front end to an adaptive array receiver. By decomposing the signals into a set of subband signals, the analysis filters enhance the correlation of multipath rays in each subband. This enhancement is blind in the sense that no a priori knowledge of the temporal characteristics or spatial signatures of arriving signals is required.With the increased coherence, the desired signal can be effectively equalized by subsequent spatial processing. Further, the CCI signals and their multipaths can be suppressed with fewer degrees of freedom. The effects of quadrature mirror filter and discrete Fourier transform filter banks on multipath correlation are delineated.
