Pilot Matrix Design for Interim Channel Estimation in Two-Hop MIMO AF Relay Systems
In this paper, we are concerned with a two-hop multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) amplify-andforward (AF) relay system consisting of a source node (SN), a relay node (RN), and a destination node (DN). Since the simple RN in this system is unaware of the structure of its received signal and incapable of performing complicated signal processing, the interim channels over the SN-RN and the RN-DN hops can not be estimated directly. Therefore, we develop a novel interim channel estimation approach in this paper. Futhermore, we find necessary and sufficient conditions for the pilot amplifying matrix sequence at the RN to ensure successful interim channel estimation at the DN, and present rules to design low-complexity pilot amplifying matrices meeting these conditions.
