A joint decoding method for space-time block codes is presented. The space-time coded signals can be viewed as a first-order Markov chain, permitting the development of a Multiple Model algorithm. Therefore the quasi-static assumption can be relaxed and joint channel and symbol estimation is carried out at each time-instant as opposed to at the end of a block duration.
