A new multicarrier M-ary orthogonal chaotic vector shift keying with index modulation (MC-MOCVSK-IM) is presented in this paper. In this design, information bits are conveyed not only by the multiple groups of M-ary information bearing signals, but also by the specific indices of the selected reference signals which depend on the incoming mapped bits. Benefiting from the favorable features of multicarrier modulation, M-ary modulation and index modulation, MC-MOCVSK-IM system is capable to offer higher energy efficiency and spectral efficiency at some expense of hardware complexity. In addition, the analytical bit error rate (BER) expressions of MC-MOCVSK-IM system are derived over additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and multipath Rayleigh fading channels. The BER performance comparison between MC-MOCVSK-IM system and other non-coherent chaotic communication systems is carried out to highlight the superiority of MC-MOCVSK-IM system in terms of BER performance. Considering the dramatically increased demand for high-data-rate transmission and the harsh environment of future wireless communication, MC-MOCVSK-IM system shows strong robustness and offers competitive solutions for high-data-rate non-coherent chaotic communication systems. © 2019 IEEE.
