The paper proposes a concurrent constant modulus algorithm (CMA) and decision-directed (DD) scheme for fractionally-spaced blind equalization. The proposed algorithm makes full use of the advantages of CMA and DD algorithm. A novel rule to control the adjustment of DD’s tap weights vector is proposed which avoids the hard switch between CMA and DD in practice. Simulations with underwater acoustic channels are used to compare the proposed algorithm with the famous CMA. And the simulation results show that the proposed algorithm has faster convergence rate and lower steady state mean square error.
