In this contribution we investigate the serial search based initial code acquisition performance of DSCDMA employing multiple transmit antennas both with and without Post-Detection Integration (PDI), when communicating over uncorrelated Rayleigh channels. We characterise the associated performance trends as a function of the number of transmit antennas. It is demonstrated that in contrast to our expectation, the achievable correct detection probability PD degrades at low c o E /I values, as the number of transmit antennas is increased. It is extremely undesirable to degrade the achievable acquisition performance, when the system is capable of attaining its target bit error rate performance at reduced SINR values, as a benefit of employing multiple transmit antennas. Our future research will focus on the study of designing iterative turbo-like acquisition schemes designed for MIMO systems.
