In this paper, the authors propose the idea of Phase-Superposition-Phase-Forward (PSPF) relaying for 2-way 3-phase cooperative network involving constant envelope modulation with discriminator detection in a time-selective Rayleigh fading environment. A semi-analytical expression for the Bit-Error-Rate (BER) of this system is derived and the results are verified by simulation. It was found that, compared to one-way relaying, 2-way relaying with PSPF suffers only a moderate loss in energy efficiency (of 1.5 dB). On the other hand, PSPF improves the transmission efficiency by 33%.
