AbstractChannel equalizers based on minimum mean square error (MMSE) and zero forcing (ZF) criteria have been formulated for a general scalable multiple input multiple output (MIMO) system and implemented for a 2x2 MIMO system with spatial multiplexing (SM) for Rayleigh channel associated with additive white Gaussian noise. A model to emulate transmitters and receivers on a spinning vehicle has been developed. A transceiver based on the BLAST architecture is developed in this work. A mathematical framework to explain the behavior of the ZF and MMSE equalizers is formulated. The performance of the equalizers has been validated for a case with one of the communication entities being a spinning aero vehicle. Performance analysis with respect to variation of angular separation between the antennas and relative antenna gain for each case is presented. Based on the simulation results a setup with optimal design parameters for placement of antennas, choice of the equalizers and transmit power is proposed.
