The research effort investigates system requirements, configurations, and associated performance characteristics of maximum-likelihood space-diversity receiving systems. From the maximum-likelihood principle, and the multidimensional Karhunen-Loeve expansion, the continuous decision equations for space-time detection of noisy, random multipath signals are developed. Interpretation of these equations yields the optimum space-time receiving system configuration requirements.
