Space-time block coding (STBC) and a number of derivative techniques have been developed to maximize the diversity gain of a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) channel. This was later generalized for multi-user DS-CDMA systems through space-time spreading (STS),  and , which assumed flat fading as well as the availability of full channel state information (CSI) at the receiver. This paper focuses on the development of a blind chip-rate method for the equalization of STS over channels with inter-symbol interference (ISI). Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the convergence and noise resilience of the derived algorithm.
