Cooperative Communication in Space-Time-Frequency Coded MB-OFDM UWB

L. C. Tran, A. Mertins, T. A. Wysocki


Though cooperative communication has been intensively examined for general wireless systems, such as mobile and ad-hoc networks, it has been almost unexplored in the case of space-time-frequency coded multi-band OFDM ultra-wideband (STFC MB-OFDM UWB). This paper proposes a framework of cooperative communication in such systems where nodes are equipped with only one antenna. Simulation results show that cooperative communication might, in some cases, provide better error performance than non-cooperative communication without any additional transmission power.
