This paper focuses on packet combining for multi-relay systems operating over multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) broadband channel. The work presented in this paper is valid for both amplify-andforward (AF) and decode-and-forward (DF) relaying schemes. First, we drive a communication model in such a way that the destination can see the received signals during the relaying slots as direct retransmissions from the source. We then present a multi-slot communication model where transmission over

Using simulations, we show that this schemes outperform each other depending on the relays location and demonstrate that the multirelay transmissions provide better diversity gain than the conventional hybrid-Automatic repeat request (ARQ).
