In this paper, we propose a simple orthogonal space-time block coding (OSTBC) technique for continuous-phase modulation (CPM). Although the straightforward combination of orthogonal designs (ODs) and CPM was deemed impossible in X. Zhang and M.P. Fitz (2003) G. Wang and X-G Xia (2004) we show that this is easily accomplished with a burst-based approach. In fact, using the proposed technique ODs can be combined with any CPM scheme. After an appropriate ST combining at the receiver, the same detection techniques as in case of single-antenna transmission can be applied. This is a significant advantage over previously proposed ST coding schemes for CPM. We also derive accurate approximations for the bit error rate and the frame error rate of CPM with OSTBC. Both analysis and simulations show in good agreement the excellent performance of the proposed scheme
