A space-time block-coded OFDM scheme for unknown frequency-selective fading channels Academic Article uri icon


  • We introduce a space-time block-coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (STBC-OFDM) scheme for frequency-selective fading channels which does not require channel knowledge either at the transmitter or at the receiver. The decoding algorithm is based on generalized maximum-likelihood sequence estimation. We investigate the performance of the proposed scheme over two-tap Rayleigh fading channels. Simulation results show the performance to be near optimum.
