Based on the Khatri-Rao matrix product, we propose a novel unitary space-time modulation design called KR-USTM in this paper. Different from existing USTM schemes, such as the systematic approach and space-time frequency-shift keying (ST-FSK), KR-USTM does not require any computer search and can be applied to any number of transmit antennas. Moreover, the special structure of KR-USTM also makes it a high-rate scheme and achieve full antenna diversity as well as lower decoding complexity. Simulation results show that the proposed KR-USTM constellation achieves error performance comparable to existing USTM designs at low rates, while it outperforms them at high rates.
