Recently, we have developed new adaptive algorithms for subspace estimation and tracking. Among them, the so-called Normalised Orthogonal Oja (NOOJA) algorithm exhibits a very good performance as compared to other algorithms in the literature. In this paper, we show how this algorithm can be used for multiuser detection in the context of MC-DS-CDMA.
