This paper considers the performance of a DS-CDMA system which employs adaptive antenna technology at the basestation site. By utilising the capability of ray-tracing to provide the complex channel impulse response, a new ray-based simulation methodology for an adaptive antenna in a DS-CDMA system is presented. Results for a typical microcellular environment highlight the behaviour of the adaptive antenna. Finally, with the help of a DS-CDMA capacity analysis, the potential spectrum efficiency enhancement is evaluated.
