This thesis compared the performance of a blind relay communication system with that of a non-blind relay communication system. For a blind system, a differential space-time block code (DSTBC) or a blind Viterbi detection were used, and for a non-blind system, a space-time block code (STBC) was used. Also, this thesis took another blind detection mechanism, the Zhang’s code, and compared its performance with that of the blind Viterbi detection under a Jakes’ fading environment. It was found that the case of a relay closer to the destination shows better performance than the other case of a relay closer to the destination. It was also observed that the blind Viterbi decoder shows better performance than the Zhang’s code under the Jakes’ fading environment.
