Summary: 
The constant modulus algorithm (CMA) of the adaptive array has been developed for suppressing the co-channel interference and the intersymbol interference in mobile communications. In this paper a novel CMA for the hybrid of the adaptive array and equalizer (HAE) is proposed to combat the problems of insufficient degrees of freedom and mainbeam multipath interferers. The HAE with CMA utilizes the constant modulus property for the output signal of the HAE to adjust the weight vectors of the array and equalizer simultaneously. The co-channel interferers can be canceled by the array and the multipath interferers can be removed by the array or the equalizer following the array in the HAE. Therefore, the array in the HAE with CMA may need less number of elements than that required by the CMA array which cancels both the co-channel interferers and multipath interferers. Besides, the presence of the mainbeam multipath interferers, which may seriously degrade the performance of the CMA array, has much less effect on the HAE with CMA since it can be suppressed by the equalizer instead of the array. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the merits of the CMA for the HAE.
