The channel capacity of the Bell Labs layered space-time (BLAST) communication architecture is substantially larger than that of traditional systems in certain applications. However, the correlation between individual channels may severely degrade the BLAST performance. An investigation is presented into the BLAST architecture and a simple formula derived for its channel capacity as a function of the correlation coefficient. This gives a simple method of estimating BLAST performance in
