Abstract

In this paper, we use a distributed beamforming method in cognitive radio relay networks in an effort to enhance the spectrum efficiency and improve the performance of the cognitive (secondary) system. In particular, we consider a spectrum sharing system where a set of potential relays are employed to help a pair of secondary users in the presence of a licensed (primary) user. A selection relaying scenario in an amplify and forward (AF) scheme is investigated. In this context, we obtain the exact expressions for the cumulative distribution function (CDF) and the moment generating function (MGF) of the equivalent end-to-end SNR at the secondary destination. Then, to analyze the performance, we derive closed-form expressions for the outage probability and bit error rate (BER) over independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) Rayleigh fading channels. Numerical results demonstrate the efficacy of beamforming in improving the secondary system performance in addition to limiting the interference to the primary users.
