On the performance of concatenated convolutional code and Alamouti space-time code with noisy channel estimates and finite-depth
Abstract--In this paper, performance of the Alamouti spacetime code (STC) [1] and performance of the concatenation between the convolutional code and the Alamouti STC are derived. In order to describe realistic performance issues, we assume that the channel estimates are calculated from linear filters using noisy pilot symbols. We also assume non-quasistatic channels, spatially correlated transmit antennas and finitedepth interleaving. Two types of receivers are investigated for the Alamouti STC, namely, the linear-combining space-time decoder (LC-STD) and the maximum-likelihood space-time decoder (MLSTD). Two types of receivers are investigated for the concatenated system, namely, the LC-STD with the ML convolutional decoder and the joint Alamouti and convolutional ML decoder. The results have shown that the LC-STD is more sensitive to the Doppler spread than the ML-STD. However, since the MLSTD is very sensitive to the channel estimation error, the gains provided by the decoder in fa...
