Recently, a versatile user cooperation method called coded cooperation diversity has been introduced, in which the codewords of each mobile are partitioned and transmitted through independent fading channels instead of simple repetition relay, to achieve remarkable gains over a conventional (non-cooperation) system, while maintaining the same information rate and transmission power. In this paper we present an adaptive space-time (AST) coded cooperation scheme based on the decoding operation on the first partition of the codeword at the base station and enables practical adaptive arrangement of resources to adopt the channel condition. Performance analysis and simulation results have proved that the proposed scheme greatly improves error rate performance and system throughput, compared with the previous framework.
