We provide an efficient transmission scheme which embeds a pilot signal in the data signal for channel state information (CSI) based on the configuration of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system using space-time block coding (STBC) with an adaptive array (AA). A computer simulation and analysis show that the proposed scheme, which combines the advantage of an Alamouti-like STBC scheme and the pilot-based AA, can suppress the irreducible error due to random FM noise. The proposed scheme using a pilot minimizes the decoding delay, and is highly robust against fast fading. We show that the proposed scheme can significantly increase the data transmission rate by using the transmitter diversity based on STBC, and the accuracy of the proposed technique is exemplified by a computer simulation.
