We consider amplify-and-forward (AF) type cooperative wireless relay networks employing single bit closed-loop extended orthogonal space-time block coding (CL EO-STBC) over two selected cooperating relay nodes. Selection is performed from a set of NR available relay nodes each equipped with two antennas and outer convolutive coding is used to improve performance. A near-optimum detection scheme is used at the destination node for overcoming the effects of imperfect synchronization among selected relay nodes. End-to-end simulation results show that the employed detection scheme can effectively eliminate the interference components induced by asynchronism with low detection complexity. Furthermore, the one-bit feedback scheme and relay selection technique can enhance the overall system performance and outperform previous feedback methods.
