A new fuzzy multiuser detector for non-Gaussian synchronous direct sequence code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) is proposed for jointly mitigating the effects of impulsive noise and multiple access interference (MAI). The proposed scheme combines a linear decorrelator and antenna array with a nonlinear preprocessor based on fuzzy logic and rank ordering. The fuzzy rule is incorporated to combat impulsive noise by eliminating outliers from the received signal. The performance of the proposed scheme is assessed by Monte Carlo simulations and the obtained results demonstrate that the proposed fuzzy detector outperforms other reported schemes in terms of bit error rate (BER) and channel capacity.
