We propose Multiple-Symbol Differential Detection (MSDD) aided Differential Space-Time Block Codes (DSTBCs) using QAM. Our solution eliminates the requirement of high-complexity MIMO channel estimation and its pilot overhead, while mitigating the potential performance degradation of noncoherent receivers in fast fading channels. Additionally, we develop Multiple-Symbol Differential Sphere Detection (MSDSD) for the QAM aided DSTBC schemes advocated, in order to circumvent their potentially excessive complexity.
