A symbol detector for wireless systems using space division multiple access (SDMA) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is derived. The detector uses a sphere decoder (SD) and has much less computational complexity than the naive maximum likelihood (ML) detector. We also show how to detect non-constant modulus signals with constrained least squares (CLS) receiver, which is designed for constant modulus (unitary) signals. The new detector outperforms existing suboptimal detectors for both uncoded and coded systems.
