In this paper, we derive the performance analysis of the coded cooperation over a Rician fading channel. A new scheme called coded cooperation was suggested by using user cooperation and channel codes simultaneously. In previous works, it was verified that the coded cooperation schemes have better performance than other relay schemes in a Rayleigh fading channel. However, the high speed short range indoor wireless communication system has recently attracted research attention and its channel with very high carrier frequency(60GHz) can be typically modeled as a Rician fading channel. We derive analytical outage probabilities and bit error probabilities of the coded cooperation over the Rician fading channel and prove it to have full diversity order.
