In this paper, we propose an adaptive algorithm based on accumulated signal processing, which could be applicable to Post-FFT-type OFDM adaptive array antennas. Proposed scheme calculates the weight of each element at a particular instant t, by considering both post- and pre-received symbols. Because of the use of additional forthcoming information on channel behavior in the weight calculation scheme, one can expect an improved performance in fast fading conditions by using the proposed adaptive algorithm. This paper also discusses the application of the proposed adaptive algorithm to OFDM adaptive array. In OFDM application, a few subchannels are being used to transmit pilot symbols, and at the receiver, the proposed adaptive algorithm is applied to those pilot subchannels, and interpolates the weights for the data subchannels which are allocated between the pilot subchannels. Finally, the system performance improvement with the application of the proposed adaptive algorithm is verified by computer simulation.
