The effect of additive noise on the channel state information (CSI) quality is a crucial issue in mobile communication systems. The adaptive subcarrier grouping (ASG) for sample matrix inversion (SMI) based minimum mean square error (MMSE) adaptive array has been previously proposed. However, this method needs to know the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in advance to set the threshold, perform grouping, and take the average, causing an insufficient number of signal samples. As a result, the ability to eliminate noise is limited. In this paper, we propose a new method based on data-aided weight calculation and the least mean square (LMS) algorithm without SNR information, which increases the number of samples. The decision results and initial weight are obtained by the SMI method with subcarrier grouping, and then the LMS method with subcarrier grouping is applied to reduce the channel estimation error as well as the amount of computation. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheme is an efficient approach to improve Bit Error Rate (BER) performance under various Rician K factors.
