A MIMO-OFDM channel estimation scheme utilizing complementary sequences

Published

Journal Article

We present a pilot-assisted method for estimating the frequency selective channel in a MIMO-OFDM system. The pilot sequence is designed using the DFT of the Golay complementary sequences. Novel exploitation of the perfect autocorrelation property of Golay complementary sequences, in conjunction with OSTBC based pilot waveform scheduling across multiple OFDM frames, facilitates simple separation of the channel mixtures at the receive antennas. The DFT length used to transform the complementary sequence into the frequency domain is shown to be a key critical parameter for correctly estimating the channel. This channel estimation scheme is then extended to antenna arrays of arbitrary sizes. ©2009 IEEE.
