Adaptive arrays have been recognized as an attractive mean for overcoming multipath fading and interference rejection in the field of mobile communications. In, an adaptive array applicable to single-user spread spectrum (SS) systems has been proposed. In this system, any a priori information concerning incoming signal, even the spreading code and synchronization, is not necessary while it achieves equalizing, beamforming and despreading of a received signal, simultaneously. In this paper, we propose a multistage blind adaptive array antenna based on the above-mentioned adaptive algorithm in order to realize blind signal processing that is applicable to multi-user SS systems. Behavior and performance of the proposed multistage system are examined through computer simulations.
