In this paper, we present a coding strategy for wireless relay networks where the relay nodes are small devices with few resources, while the source and sink are equipped with multiple antennas to increase the transmission rate. We assume no channel knowledge at all, and the receiver decodes knowing none of the channel paths. This coding scheme uses distributed space-time coding techniques and is inspired by noncoherent differential space-time coding. It is shown to yield a diversity linear in the minimum number of transmit/receive antennas times the number of relays.
