New beamforming method based on simplex downhill optimaization process has been presented for the reverse link CDMA systems. The proposed system performs code-filtering at each antenna for each user. It is shown that for fast fading channels, conventional sqare error based cost functions can yield poor results. A new method is proposed based on a variation of the SINK cost function coupled with optimal time variying channel estimation to improve signal tracking. The new beamforming method gives lower computations and faster convergence properties than existing algorithms in fast filing enviromnment. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm has a better BER performance in the case of the time-varing channel.
