In this letter, we present formulas for the pairwise error-event probability (PEP) and bit error probability (BEP) of trellis-coded unitary space-time modulation (TC-USTM) operated in a piecewise constant Rayleigh fading channel. From these analyses we discovered design criteria for the TC-USTM encoder to achieve an optimal BEP performance. We conduct simulations and verify that our analyzes are accurate, especially at high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).
