This paper(1) presents the design of space-time turbo trellis coded modulation (ST turbo TCM). We introduce new recursive space-time trellis coded modulation (STTC) which outperform feedforward STTC proposed in [1],[3]. A substantial improvement in performance can e obtained by constructing parallel concatenation of recursive STTC and making use of iterative decoding. The new recursive STTCs can be used directly in this scheme. ST turbo TCM outperforms the best known STTC by about 2 dB on slow fading channels and by up to 8 dB on fast fading channels.
