This paper proposes a novel and efficient algorithm for space-time block code (STBC) classification, when a single antenna is employed at the receiver. The algorithm exploits the discriminating features provided by the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) of the fourth-order lag products (FOLPs) of the received signal. It does not require estimation of the channel, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and modulation of the transmitted signal. Computer simulations are conducted to evaluate the performance… CONTINUE READING
