—A method for coherently detecting and decoding turbo– coded binary phase shift keying (BPSK) signals transmitted over frequency-flat fading channels is discussed. Estimates of the complex channel gain and variance of the additive noise are derived first from known pilot symbols and an estimation filter.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that regulates all wireless communication service providers has issued modified regulations that all service providers must select a method for providing position location (PL) information of a user, requesting for E-911 service, by October 2000. The wireless 911 rules adopted by the FCC are aimed both for… (More)
User cooperation, whereby multiple users share their antennas and transmit to a common destination in a collaborative manner, has been shown to be an effective way to achieve spatial diversity. We propose in this paper, a strategy to minimize the total power in a decode-and-forward (DF) multiuser , multi-relay cooperative uplink, such that each user… (More)
