Motivated by the recent works of coded cooperation this letter presents a composite signal structure based coded cooperation technique. Our proposed protocol performs well in both slow and fast fading whereas, conventional coded cooperation is ineffective in fast fading. We develop the bounds on BER and FER of our proposal. Simulations confirm our developed bound and shows that the proposed coded cooperation protocol outperforms direct transmission in both fast and slow fading environments.
