Uplink non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has been proposed as an efficient technique to support massive connectivity and reduce access-latency. However, due to the inherent multiuser interference within such a system, iterative joint detection is required, which is of high-complexity. In this paper, we exploit the propagation properties of wireless channels to reduce the detection complexity. In particular, when neighboring spreading-blocks on the time-frequency grid experience similar channel conditions, then it is possible to reuse the calculated filter weights between them. We propose four detection strategies and compare them across a wide range of time- and frequency- selectively. Then, assuming the base station is equipped with a sufficient number of antennas, we replace the MMSE filter with a lower-complexity approximation using Neumann series expansion. The results show that our strategies incur only a small performance loss, while substantially cutting down complexity.
