The subspace algorithm can be utilized for the blind detection of space-time block codes (STBC) without knowledge of channel state information (CSI) both at the transmitter and receiver. However, its performance degrades when the channels are correlated. In this letter, we analyze the impact of channel correlation from the orthogonality loss between the transmit signal subspace (TSS) and the statistical noise subspace (SNS). Based on the decoding property of the subspace algorithm, we propose a revised detection in favor of the channel correlation matrix (CCM) only known to the receiver. Then, a joint transmit-receive preprocessing scheme is derived to obtain a further performance improvement when the CCM is available both at the transmitter and receiver. Analysis and simulation results indicate that the proposed methods can significantly improve the blind detection performance of STBC over the correlated channels.
