This paper presents new upper bounds on the pairwise error probability (PEP) of trellis-coded modulation (TCM) schemes over nonindependent Rician fading channels. Cases considered are coherent and pilot-tone-aided detection and differential detection of trellis-coded multilevel phase-shift keying (TC-MPSK) systems. The average bit-error probability Pb can be approximated by truncating the union bound. This method does not necessarily lead to an upper bound on Pb, and, hence, the approximation must be used with simulation results. In addition, for Rayleigh fading channels with an exponential autocovariance function, bounds resembling those for memoryless channels have been derived. The bounds are substantially more accurate than Chernoff bounds and hence allow for accurate estimation of system performance when the assumption of ideal interleaving is relaxed
