Interleaved Division Multiple Access (IDMA) is a new access scheme that has been proposed in the literature to increase the capacity of wireless channels. The performance of such systems depends on the accuracy of the channel state information at the receiver. In this paper, a Noisy-Independent Component Analysis (N-ICA) based IDMA receiver for multiple access communication channels is proposed. The N-ICA component is applied as a post processor. Unlike other IDMA receivers, the proposed scheme detects and separates the transmitted symbols without channel state information tracking. The performance of the proposed technique is presented in terms of raw bit error rate (BER) without channel coding for different signal to noise ratios (SNR). Simulation results demonstrate that N-ICA post processor provides an improvement in performance in terms of bit error rate (BER) in loaded systems. When the system is not loaded, the proposed post processor presents the same performance as conventional IDMA receiver with less iterations leading to a complexity reduction.
