We introduce a Cooperative Distributed Multistage Spatial Diversity (CDMSD) scheme. By means of prior derived relaying topologies our algorithm relies on a robust and low complexity transceiver entity. CDMSD is implemented such as to improve throughput enhancement, coverage extension and spectral efficiency improvement. The benefits are provided by achieving full diversity and frequency selectivity. Simulation results are presented and compare to traditional non-distributed networks to support the analytical framework. Additionally fractional frame duration and transmitted power control are implemented to achieve higher data transmission rates. Providing a performance near optimum, our protocol has gained significantly in research momentum, mainly due to its ability to boost capacity and its inherent attribute of scalability to ad hoc and wireless sensor networks. CDMSD makes full use of MC-CDMA frequency domain spreading properties by introducing immerse collaboration and distributed frequency diversity in a multi-hop network architecture which has drawn much attention in industry and academia in terms of reliable performance.
