In this letter, we propose a combined scheme of minimum mean square error (MMSE) detection and successive interference cancellation (SIC) for multiuser space-time block coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (STBC-OFDM) systems. With the same complexity order, the proposed scheme provides significant bit error rate (BER) performance improvement over the linear MMSE multiuser detector.
