In this paper, we design a new coded cooperation protocol utilizing superposition modulation together with iterative decoding/detection algorithms. The aim of the proposed system is to apply "dirty paper coding" theory in the context of half-duplex relay systems. In the proposed system, the node transmits a superposed signal which consists of its own coded information and other node's re-coded information. The destination node detects and decodes the signal using the received signals at two continuous time-slots with iterative decoding algorithm. Moreover, the destination node detects the received signal using the results of decoding, iteratively. This paper provides the outage probability of the proposed system under the assumption that the proposed system can ideally perform dirty paper coding, and it is shown from the comparison between outage probabilities and simulated results that the proposed system can get close to the dirty paper coding theory.
