Abstract: Over recent years, various modulation and coding techniques have been proposed in MIMO wireless communication systems. A MIMO system uses the concept of spatial diversity which is very successful and promising technique. When a coherent transmission system is considered, the estimation of radio channel impulse response is done precisely. In MIMO systems, the radio channel is estimated among every transmitting and receiving antennas such that the complexity can be increased. For this reason, in MIMO systems differential modulation schemes are estimated. A Differential Space-Time Block Code (DSTBC) is useful in the Raleigh fading channel as they do not require channel estimates. Space-time coding with MIMO antennas at transmitting and receiving reduces the consequences of fading in multiple paths and therefore the performance of digital transmission throughout wireless radio channel can be improved. So it has been presumed that perfect CSI is available at the receiver and coherent detection is employed. This paper presents improvement of Frame Error Rate (FER) for differential space-time block code using various Doppler spectra. When the channels estimates are not available the DSTBC system noticed that at SNR of 10 dB, for two transmitting and four receiving antennas the FER is 0.0067 for rounded Doppler spectrum. The differential schemes attains full transmit diversity owing to orthogonal designs. However, the receiver or the transmitter needs the channel state information so these differential schemes are 3 dB worse than the STBC with coherent detection.
