Abstract In realistic channel environments the per-
formance of space­time coded multiple-input multiple
output (MIMO) systems is significantly reduced due to
non-ideal antenna placement and non-isotropic scatter-
ing. In this paper, by exploiting the spatial dimension of
a MIMO channel we introduce the novel idea of linear
known parameters of MIMO channels to ameliorate the
effects of non-ideal antenna placement on the perfor-
mance of coherent (channel is known at the receiver)
and non-coherent (channel is un-known at the receiver)
space­time codes. Antenna spacing and antenna place-
