In SDMA, a spatial domain interference canceller applying a multistage processing concept to the MMSE multibeam adaptive array has an attractive feature. Weak power signals strongly interfered can be detected in the succeeded stages after removing other strong power signals which are already detected. This idea can be enhanced to the reference timing estimation required in the MMSE algorithm. In this paper, the spatial domain interference canceller introducing multistage timing estimation is proposed and its performance is evaluated by computer simulations. The results show that the timing estimation performance highly improved.
