This paper proposes a scheme of combining low-density parity check (LDPC) code with unitary space time modulation (USTM) for noncoherent multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) transmitter and receiver over Rayleigh block fading and additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel. The main aim is to design the low complexity coded noncoherent MIMO receiver which is completely dependent on the structural feature of unitary space-time matrix without sending the pilot symbol at the transmitter and estimating the channel state information at the receiver. Considering soft information required by belief-propagation (BP) iterative decoder of LDPC code, we deduce a maximum a posteriori probability (MAP) demodulating algorithm using a special USTM based on the sine-cosine function. A novel dual-demodulator is conceived for decreasing the computational complexity of this MAP demodulator. Furthermore, the iterative feedback scheme between MAP demodulator and BP decoder is introduced and its modified parameter scheme is considered for further improving performance of the dual-demodulator. Comparing with uncoded USTM, our LDPC-coded USTM MIMO receiver can obtain about 17 dB coding gain at 10-6 BER.
