(M-CPFSK) is presented. A ST-M-CPFSK system model that incorporates the Rimoldi decomposition of CPFSK is developed. The Rimoldi decomposition separates the non-memory component of CPFSK from the memory component. The latter can be represented as a continuous phase encoder (CPE) and implemented with a ring convolutional encoder. The ST codes used here are… (More)
—We develop space-time trellis coded (STC) schemes using continuous-phase modulation (CPM). We employ the Ri-moldi model of CPM to create a decomposed model of STC-CPM. The decomposition separates the coding from the modulation. The space-time encoding and the inherent CPM encoding is combined into a single trellis encoder on the ring of integers modulo-p.… (More)
— Cooperative relaying allows single antenna users to achieve diversity and coding gains by utilizing nearby users' transmitting capabilities. We consider a relay system employing constant envelope continuous phase frequency shift keying. Distributed space-time trellis codes are implemented with a novel multiple relay protocol.
