This paper deals with blind separation of spatially correlated signals mixed by an instantaneous system. Taking advantage of the fact that the source signals are accessible in some man-made systems such as wireless communication systems, we preprocess the source signals in transmitters by a set of properly designed first-order precoders and then the coded signals are transmitted. At the receiving side, information about the precoders are utilized to perform signal separation. Compared with the existing precoder-based methods, the new method only employs the simplest first-order precoders, which reduces the delay in data transmission and is easier to implement in practical applications.
