Jamming Impact on the Performance of MIMO Space Time Block Coding Systems over Multi-path Fading Channel

Ehab M. Shaheen, Mohamed Samir


The combined effect of broad/partial band jamming on the analysis performance of multi-input/multi-output (MIMO) space time block coding (STBC) systems over Rayleigh fading channel is often neglected in the literature. To this end, this paper investigates the impact of different kinds of jamming on the performance of MIMO STBC systems. Closed form expressions for the bit error probability (BEP) of the performance of binary phase shift keying (BPSK) STBC communication system over Rayleigh fading channel under the impact of both partial band and broad-band jamming for different number of transmitting and receiving antennas are presented. Computer simulations are provided to validate the theoretical developments. It has been found that the performance of such systems is severely deteriorated in the presence of strong jamming power (with a signal to jamming power ratio less than − 10dB) and the worst scenario occurs in the presence of broad-band jamming.
