This paper combines various detection techniques and analyzes their performances in detecting the transmission information of the D-STTD scheme that uses, in parallel, the STTD scheme known as the Alamouti code. The D-STTD scheme adopts one of the STTD schemes for transmission to acquire diverse effects and uses another form of STTD for multiplexing effects. Due to the multiplexing effect that transmits different data, it is difficult to apply D-STTD to the conventional STTD combining technique. This paper combines the D-STTD system with linear algorithm, SIC algorithm and OSIC algorithm known as multiplexing detection scheme based on MMSE scheme. And we propose the detection scheme of the D-STTD using MAP algorithm and analyze the performance of each system. The simulation results showed that the detector using iterative algorithm has better performance than Linear MMSE Detector. Especially, we can show that the detector using MAP algorithm outperforms conventional detector.
