In this paper, we propose and analyze an Adaptive Modulation System with optimal Turbo Coded V-BLAST (Vertical-Bell-lab Layered Space-Time) technique that adopts the extrinsic information from MAP (Maximum A Posteriori) Decoder with Iterative Decoding as a priori probability in two decoding procedure of V-BLAST scheme; the ordering and the slicing. Also, comparing with the Adaptive Modulation System using conventional Turbo Coded V-BLAST technique that is simply combined V-BLAST scheme with Turbo Coding scheme, we observe how much throughput performance can be improved. In addition, we apply a STD (Selection Transmit Diversity) scheme to the systems for more performance improvement. The results show that the proposed system applying a STD scheme gains about 1.77 Mbps at 11 dB SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) compared to the conventional system using 2 transmit and 2 receive antennas.
