This letter deals with robust interference suppression based on eigenanalysis interference canceller (EIC) with the joint code-aid and noise subspace-based correcting approach. It has been shown that the EIC is very sensitive to pointing error, especially when the interference number is overestimated. Based on the corrected steering angle, a proper blocking matrix of the EIC can be obtained to suppress the leakage of desired signal. Therefore, desired signal cancellation does not occur; even if the interference number is overestimated in constructing the interference subspace. Several computer simulations are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
