CONCLUSIONS

In this paper, we have thoroughly analyzed adaptive

optImIzation algorithms for MIMO/OFDM HF

communications. Simulation results also indicate that the

adaptive algorithm improved a SISO/OFDM system which

outperforms the SISO system using fixed-rate variable-power

adaptive modulation. We conclude that MIMO/OFDM is a

very promising technology, and practical adaptive rate and

power optimization algorithms serve well to improve

performance further. The adaptive scheme can be a feasible

approach to further improve the performance of HF

communication systems. A very useful extension of this paper

would be in multiuser MIMO/OFDM systems, and

characterizing good rate and power sharing algorithms to

achieve good mutual BER performance of all users.
