In this work we present a blind approach based on space-time adaptive principle component analysis using an antenna array and a compression method based on canonical components in order to mitigate multipath for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). First, pre-processing algorithms are used to separate (decorrelate) the different sources in the compressed space-time eigenspace and then the time-delay estimation is performed with a simple interpolation scheme in the compressed time domain.
