In this article, we propose a cooperative space-time coding (STC) protocol, amalgamating the concepts of asynchronous cooperation, noncoherent detection, as well as distributed turbo coding (DTC), where neither symbol-level time synchronization nor channel-state information (CSI) estimation is required at any of the cooperating nodes, while attaining high performance even at low signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). More specifically assuming the system configuration of a single source node, multiple… CONTINUE READING
