Abstract

We present an algorithm that efficiently performs blind decoding of MIMO signals. That is, given no CSI at either the transmitter or receiver, our algorithm takes a block of samples and returns an estimate of the underlying data symbols. In prior work, the problem of blind decoding was formulated as a non-convex optimization problem. In this work, we present an algorithm that efficiently solves this non-convex problem. This algorithm leverages concepts of linear and mixed-integer linear programming. Empirically, we show that our technique has an error performance close to that of zero-forcing with perfect CSI at the receiver. Initial estimates of the runtime of the algorithm presented in this work suggest that the real-time blind decoding of MIMO signals is possible for even modest sized MIMO systems.
