space diversity reception

space diversity reception

[′spās di′vər·səd·ē ri′sep·shən]
(electromagnetism)
Radio reception involving the use of two or more antennas located several wavelengths apart, feeding individual receivers whose outputs are combined; the system gives an essentially constant output signal despite fading due to variable propagation characteristics, because fading affects the spaced-out antennas at different instants of time.

Switch-and-stay (SSC) diversity reception technique is the simplest technique for practical realization, among all space diversity reception techniques, since it processes only one of the received signal replicas at each time instant.
Panic introduces fellow electrical engineers and students to some basic principles and the mathematical formalization of digital communications, and to recent developments in analyzing the performance of space diversity reception over fading channels in the presence of co-channel interference.
An efficient technique to diminish the bad influences of fading and co channel interference is space diversity reception (analyses are presented in [4-5]).
