In this paper, we propose a new method for the identification of linear Multiple Inputs-Multiple Outputs (MIMO) systems. By introducing a particular user-defined matrix that does not change the rank of the extended observability matrix when multiplying this latter matrix on the left, the subspace identification problem is recasted into a simple least squares problem with all regressors available. Therefore, the Singular Value Decomposition algorithm which is a customary tool in subspace

The technique is such that the state coordinates basis of the estimated matrices is completely determined by the aforementioned userdefined matrix, that is, given such a matrix, the state basis of the identified matrices does not change with respect to the realization of input-output data.
