In this paper, a semi-blind channel estimation method is presented for MIMO-OFDM systems. The new method uses the linear prediction for obtaining a blind constraint on the MIMO-OFDM channel matrix as well as the least-squares approximation for the training signal. The proposed method can be regarded as an extension of an existing semi-blind MIMO channel estimation algorithm. Yet the extension is nontrivial, since the formulation of the MIMO-OFDM signal and the related blind constraint cannot easily be obtained from the MIMO counterpart. The proposed algorithm is simulated using Monte-Carlo method and compared with the LS method in terms of the mean square error (MSE) of the estimation. Simulation results show that the proposed method consistently outperforms the LS method when the same training signal is used.
