Concatenated Space-Time Block Codes and Turbo Codes with Unstructured Interference

  title={Concatenated Space-Time Block Codes and Turbo Codes with Unstructured Interference},
  author={William. Chow},
The performance of space-time block codes in providing transmit diversity is severely degraded when strong localized interference is present. This problem is addressed by investigating a recently proposed coherent space-time block code decoding algorithm for unknown interference suppression. The algorithm assumes a Gaussian noise and interference approximation and is based on a cyclic-based maximum-likelihood estimation technique (CML). In this thesis, simulations are done applying CML in a… CONTINUE READING
