ABSTRACT
In this paper, we introduce the novel idea of linear spatial precod-
ing based on fixed and known parameters ofMIMO channels to im-
prove the performance of differential space-time coding schemes.
Antenna spacing and antenna placements (geometry) are consid-
ered as fixed parameters of MIMO channels, which are known at
the transmitter. This new linear spatial precoding scheme exploits
the antenna placement information at both ends ofthe MIMO chan-
nel to ameliorate the effect of non-ideal antenna placement on the
performance of differential space-time coded systems. With this
design, the precoder is fixed for fixed antenna placement and the
transmitter does not require any feedback of channel state informa-
tion (partial or full) from the receiver. A second precoding scheme
is proposed by exploiting the non-isotropic scattering distribution
parameters ofthe scattering channel. Unlike in the first scheme, the
