This paper proposes and studies a transmitter preprocessing aided spatial modulation (PSM) scheme, which conveys information jointly by a conventional amplitude-phase modulation (APM) and a preprocessing aided space shift keying (pre-SSK) modulation. In contrast to the existing SSK modulation, which carries information using the indexes of transmitter antennas and assumes channel state information at receiver (CSIR), the pre-SSK modulation extracts the transmitted information using the indexes of receive antennas and assumes channel state information at transmitter (CSIT). This paper addresses the issues of preprocessing optimization and detection of PSM signals. Furthermore, the bit-error-rate (BER) performance of the PSM is investigated, when assuming that the channel from any transmit antenna to any receive antenna experiences independent Rayleigh fading. Our studies show that, when appropriately designed, the pre-SSK and APM invoked can enhance each other, resulting in that the PSM is capable of attaining a better BER performance than the corresponding pure pre-SSK and pure APM.
