The structure and performance of a maximum-likelihood (ML) receiver for reception in spatially distributed interference channels when a multielement array capability is available are described. Under the assumption of Gaussian interference, the receiver consists of an optimum ML array processor followed by a sequence estimator implemented using the Viterbi algorithm. Numerical results illustrate the symbol error probability performance of this optimum ML receiver. A completely adaptive realization of the scheme is described with performance illustrated through simulation.
