This paper addresses the problem of synchronous CDMA communications when, due to bandwidth limitations, signature waveforms have relatively large correlations. A receiver which uses the multiple received signals available from an antenna array is proposed and its performance analyzed. This receiver may be interpreted as a multichannel extension of the decorrelating detector and therefore shares its immunity to near-far effects. The receiver uses the discrimination afforded by the antenna array to effectively reduce the correlation between users' transmitted signals thereby avoiding the reduction in performance which occurs in the single channel decorrelator when signature correlations become significant.
