ABSTRACT Radiolocation has been previously studied for CDMA networks, the effect of Multiple Access Interference has been ignored. In this paper we investigate the problem of Radiolocation in the presence of Multiple Access Interference. An extensive simulation technique was developed, which measures the error in location estimation for different network and user configurations. We include the effects of lognormal shadow and Rayleigh fading. Results that illustrate the effects of varying shadowing losses, number of base stations involved in position location, early-late discriminator offset and cell sizes in conjunction with the varying number of users per cell on the accuracy of radiolocation estimation was presented.
