Comments on SIC design for SISO NOMA Systems over Doubly Selective Channels.
Non-orthogonal multiple access principle applied in power domain (power-domain NOMA) enhances spectrum efficiency and connectivity of mobile communication systems through sharing between Orthogonal Multiple Access (OMA) and other multiple users. It is the almost main current trend for research and standards for 5G and beyond. Spectrum sharing generates multi-users interference (Multiple Access Interference, MAI) which destroys orthogonality in OMA systems. Meanwhile the so-called Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC) techniques are used to suppress MAI and the Cognitive Radio (CR) principle (CR-NOMA) for decoding order for multiple users inspired effective SIC algorithms. The CR-NOMA principle is applied in the present material as well, but with significant changes for SIC design as for Doubly Selective channels. Due to the above reasons, two original SIC design methods are proposed hereafter following the CR-NOMA principle. Regarding to it the OMA signal (primary user) is decoded first using a Chaos-based quasi-optimum Extended Kalman Filter (EKF). The set of “secondary users” (multiusers) are proposed to be decoded secondly by the following two different methods:
- Chaos-based EKF filters or ,
- Sequential m hypothesis testing.
The proposed approach for SIC design is rather simple, fast and accurate for practical implementation.
