A data and channel aided maximum likelihood (DCA-ML) symbol timing estimator for cooperative communications operating in flat fading channels is presented. The performance of the estimator is evaluated in terms of bit-errorrate (BER) and estimator variance. The BER performance is evaluated in various fading conditions and compared to a non-data-aided near maximum likelihood (NDA-NML) timing estimator and a correlation based data-aided maximum likelihood (DA-ML) timing estimator. For more severe...[Show more]
