Abstract: Chaotic communications have emerged as a promising candidate for future wireless networks. Out of several chaotic modulation techniques, CS-QCSK is the best in terms of QoS and spectral efficiency. Low complex RGR-GC has been identified to exhibit better error performance than any other STBC codes through our earlier investigations. The benefit of both the aforementioned schemes can be realised by a mere concatenation of them as a single physical layer entity. This paper attempts to study such a novel system through simulation analysis in terms of BER, spectral efficiency and capacity maximisation. The obtained results are found to be highly satisfactory in spite of marginal increase in complexity.

Keywords: code-shifted QCSK; quadrature chaos shift keying; CS-QCSK; BER; bit error rate; golden codes; coding; spectral efficiency; capacity maximisation; cellular networks; network performance; chaotic modulation; chaotic communications; wireless networks; simulation.
