The proliferation of mobile devices and the emergence of wireless location‐based services have generated consumer demand for precise location. In this paper, the MUSIC super‐resolution algorithm is applied to time delay estimation for positioning purposes in cellular networks. The goal is to position a Mobile Station with UMTS technology. The problem of Base‐Stations herability is solved using Cumulative Virtual Blanking. A simple simulator is presented using DS‐SS signal. The results show that MUSIC algorithm improves the time delay estimation in both the cases whether or not Cumulative Virtual Blanking was carried out.
