In this correspondence, we propose an analog network coding scheme with differential modulation (ANC-DM) using amplify-and-forward protocol for bidirectional relay networks when neither the source nodes nor the relay knows the channel state information (CSI). The performance of the proposed ANC-DM scheme is analyzed and a simple asymptotic bit error rate (BER) expression is derived. The analytical results are verified through simulations. It is shown that the BER performance of the proposed differential scheme is about 3 dB away from that of the coherent detection scheme. To improve the system performance, the optimum power allocation between the sources and the relay is determined based on the simplified BER. Simulation results indicate that the proposed differential scheme with optimum power allocation yields 1-2 dB performance improvement over an equal power allocation scheme.

    • "Hence, we propose to use differential modulation for two-way satellite communication for avoiding the need for the channel information in ES-i. Let x i [n] be a differentially modulated symbol transmitted by the ES-i, then we have the following relation: x i [n] = x i [n − 1]s i [n], (3) where s i [n] denotes the information containing symbol to be transmitted in the n-th time-interval; |x i [n]| 2 = 1 which denotes that s i [n] belogs to a unit-norm M -ary phase shift keying (M -PSK) constellation A. Since the satellite links do not follow the reciprocity, the existing decoders of the terrestrial differential two-way relaying [25] are not applicable for the differential twoway satellite relaying. Therefore, we need to develop new differential decoder for the proposed system. "

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we study two-way satellite relaying between two earth stations (ESs) willing to exchange their signals via a satellite. The satellite communication has big problems of propagation delay and fast channel gain fluctuations, due to which it is difficult to generate perfect channel information in ESs for self interference cancellation and decoding of transmitted symbols. Therefore, the usual two-way relaying developed for the terrestrial links is not applicable for the satellite links. In order to avoid the problem of channel estimation, we propose to use differential modulation in both ESs. Then we develop a differential detector of the symbols transmitted by the ESs. The satellite is assumed to be of transparent type. The proposed differential decoder allows for self interference cancellation and detection of the transmitted symbols without any channel information. However, the proposed differential detector requires a relative rotation between the constellations of both ESs for performing satisfactorily. The proposed two-way relaying is useful for the satellite communication systems as it allows the ESs to exchange their data via satellite without any training. The pairwise error probability (PEP) of the proposed scheme is also derived. Based on the PEP, we analytically find the diversity of the considered system.

    • "The beamforming design requires the channel state information (CSI) of the LR and/or the UR priori. The physical layer security can be used in many application senarios [5] [6] [7], e.g., the two-way relaying [11] [12] [13]. "

    ABSTRACT: Discriminatory channel estimation (DCE) is a recently developed strategy to enlarge the performance difference between a legitimate receiver (LR) and an unauthorized receiver (UR) in a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless system. Specifically, it makes use of properly designed training signals to degrade channel estimation at the UR which in turn limits the UR's eavesdropping capability during data transmission. In this paper, we propose a new two-way training scheme for DCE through exploiting a whitening-rotation (WR) based semiblind method. To characterize the performance of DCE, a closed-form expression of the normalized mean squared error (NMSE) of the channel estimation is derived for both the LR and the UR. Furthermore, the developed analytical results on NMSE are utilized to perform optimal power allocation between the training signal and artificial noise (AN). The advantages of our proposed DCE scheme are two folds: 1) compared to the existing DCE scheme based on the linear minimum mean square error (LMMSE) channel estimator, the proposed scheme adopts a semiblind approach and achieves better DCE performance; 2) the proposed scheme is robust against active eavesdropping with the pilot contamination attack, whereas the existing scheme fails under such an attack.

    • "As a basic model of the relay-based M2M two-way communications, the three-node cooperation model, which is also referred to as the two-way relay channel, where two source nodes exchange information via a relay node using amplify-and-forward (AF) or decode-and-forward (DF) strategy, has attracted a great deal of research interest because of its improved spectral efficiency [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]. AF relaying is more popular in practice because the relays only amplify and process the signal linearly before they retransmit it again and thus AF leads to low-complexity relay transceivers. "

    ABSTRACT: The growing popularity of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications in wireless networks is driving the need to update the corresponding receiver technology based on the characteristics of M2M. In this paper, an expectation-maximization-based maximum likelihood cascaded channel estimation method is developed for relay-based M2M two-way communications. As the closed-form solution of maximum likelihood channel estimation does not exist, and the superimposed signal structure at the receiver is conducive to the expectation-maximization application, the expectation-maximization algorithm is utilized to provide the maximum likelihood solution in the presence of unobserved data through stable iterations. Even in the absence of the training sequence, the cascaded channel estimates are obtained through the expectation-maximization iterations. The Bayesian Cramér-Rao lower bounds are derived under random parameters for the channel estimation, and the simulation demonstrates the validity of the proposed studies.
