In this paper, a simple blind algorithm for a beamforming antenna is proposed. This algorithm exploits the property of cyclostationary signals whose cyclic autocorrelation function depends on delay as well as frequency. The cost function is the mean square error between the delay product of the beamformer output and a complex exponential. Exploiting the delay greatly reduces the possibility of capturing undesired signals. Through analysis of the minima of the non-quadratic cost function, conditions to extract a single signal are derived. Application of this algorithm to code-division multiple-access systems is considered, and it is shown through simulation that the desired signal can be extracted by appropriately choosing the delay as well as the frequency.
