Minimum Mean Squared Error (MMSE) detection has been proposed for Direct Sequence-Code Division Multiple Access (DS-CDMA) system. MMSE detectors rely on a known training sequence for initial adaptation, and subsequently switch to decision-directed mode. After the switch, the performance of the adaptive algorithm may degrade if a strong interference suddenly appears. Hence, this paper presents a 'rescue' algorithm that monitors for sudden changes in the signal space, which may be caused by the appearance of a strong interference. It is shown that the presence of low-level background noise, a good estimate can be obtained within a few symbol intervals. A numerical example is given which illustrate the performance of the rescue algorithm in a synchronous DS-CDMA system.
