An efficient performance enhancement scheme using the rotation of signal subspace (RSS) and Toeplitz matrix approximation (TMA) methods to enhance the performance of an adaptive antenna array in DS/CDMA systems is proposed. The basis of RSS is to find a transformation matrix in order to recover the desired complex array covariance matrix from a sampled complex array covariance matrix which is contaminated by an interference-plus-noise component. Also, the objective of TMA is to change the output matrix of RSS into a matrix having the theoretical properties such as Toeplitz structure matrix or a positive semidefinite matrix. Consequently, the proposed scheme using RSS and TMA methods can greatly improve the performance of an adaptive antenna array by reducing the interference-plus-noise effect from the sampled complex array covariance matrix of the pre-correlation received signal vector that is used to calculate a weight vector of an adaptive antenna array. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
