Efficient schemes to enhance the performance of the optimum beamforming for DS/CDMA systems are proposed. The main focus of the proposed schemes is to enhance the practical estimation of an array response vector used at the weight vector for the optimum beamforming. The proposed schemes for the performance enhancement of the optimum beamforming are the Complex Toeplitz Approximation (CTA) and the real Toeplitz-plus-Hankel Approximation (RTHA) which have the theoretical property of an overall noise-free signal. It is shown through several simulation results that the performance of the optimum beamforming using the proposed schemes is much superior to that of a system using the conventional method under several simulation environments, i.e., the number of users, the SNR value, the number of antenna elements, the angular spread, and Nakagami fading parameter.
