In this paper, the authors propose the combination of Multi Carrier (MC) OFDM/OQAM modulation and CDMA called MC-CDMA-OQAM system with Space Time (ST) coding in a multi user context. This combination takes advantages from multicarrier modulation, spread spectrum and spatial time diversity. Indeed, the use of OFDM has proved its ability to fight against frequency selective channels but the insertion of guard interval yields spectral efficiency loss and sensitivity to frequency dispersion due to the use of rectangular pulse shape.
