This paper proposes two space-time joint channel parameter estimation and signal detection algorithms for downlink DS-CDMA systems with multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) wireless multipath fading channels. The proposed algorithms initially use the space-time MUSIC to estimate the DOA-delays of the multipath channel. Based on these estimated DOA-delays, a space-time channel decoupler is developed to decompose the multipath downlink channel into a set of independent parallel subchannels. The fading amplitudes of the multipath can then be estimated from the eigen space of the output of the space-time channel decoupler. With these estimated channel parameters, signal detection is carried out by a maximal ratio combiner on a pathwise basis. Computer simulations show that the proposed algorithms outperform the conventional space-time RAKE receiver while having the similar performance compared with the space-time minimum mean square error receiver.
