Cooperative diversity is a transmission technique, where multiple terminals share their resources to form a virtual antenna array that realizes spatial diversity gain in a distributed fashion. In this paper, we focus on a performance evaluation for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission in cooperative networks under partial-band jamming (PBJ) environments. We present a bit error rate (BER) analysis for a cooperative diversity system with amplifying-and-forward (AF) relays over partially jammed Rayleigh fading channels. In addition, a simple jamming mitigation technique, called relay-based sub-band shifting method, is proposed. Through this approach, each sub-band of the amplified OFDM symbol at the relay can be changed by the predefined shifting rule of each relay, and the jamming effects at the destination are partially removed. Simulation results show that the proposed method improves significantly the BER performance at a low signal-to-jamming ratio.
