A noncoherent constant envelope orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (CE-OFDM) receiver is proposed. It is shown that CE-OFDM is naturally noncoherent since the effect of an unknown phase shift at the receiver is eliminated by the matched-filter bank following the front-end phase demodulator. The noncoherent receiver demodulates continuous phase CE-OFDM signals - which produce less adjacent channel interference - with no added complexity. Performance is evaluated in flat fading channels having both Rayleigh and Ricean statistics. Simulation results are compared to analytical approximations.
