An efficient and flexible air interface is the necessary condition for enabling high data rates next generation wireless systems. A practical answer to this need consists in exploiting channel state information at the transmitter for an adaptive and efficient use of the available radio link resources. This paper contributes with a novel strategy for the allocation of the subcarrier transmit power in the case of a wireless system featuring: i) bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM); ii) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM); iii) multiple antenna profile (MIMO). The proposed power-allocation algorithm aims at maximizing the so-called goodput performance metric for packet transmissions employing automatic repeat request (ARQ) schemes. In addition, it is also proven to be near-optimum in maximizing the input/output mutual information of the MIMOOFDM subchannels. Numerical simulations over typical wireless indoor scenarios confirm the effectiveness of the procedure when applied in the context of MIMO-BICM-OFDM systems.
