Adaptive prediction iterative channel estimation is presented for combined antenna diversity and coherent rake reception of direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) signals. Its first stage uses pilot-aided adaptive prediction channel estimation, while the succeeding iteration stages use decision feedback and moving average filtering for channel re-estimation. The bit error rate (BER) performance of DSSS signal computer simulations evaluate transmission in a frequency selective Rayleigh fading channel. It is found that the adaptive prediction iterative channel estimation is superior to the non adaptive iterative channel estimation using the conventional weighted multi-slot averaging (WMSA) filtering at the first iteration stage, particularly in a fast fading channel.
