Claim of US Patent No. 10,798,704

1. A method for wireless communication, comprising:identifying a set of mini-slots to be used for transmission of one or more reference signals and at least one data payload, the set of mini-slots having a first reference signal configuration for transmission of the one or more reference signals;
aggregating the set of mini-slots to form an aggregated mini-slot for transmission of the one or more reference signals;
determining a second reference signal configuration for transmission of the one or more reference signals within the aggregated mini-slot, the second reference signal configuration being different from the first reference signal configuration based at least in part on at least one of the one or more reference signals being removed or repositioned relative to the first reference signal configuration for transmission of the one or more reference signals;
allocating the at least one data payload to resources associated with the aggregated mini-slot; and
transmitting, within the aggregated mini-slot, the one or more reference signals and the at least one data payload based at least in part on the second reference signal configuration and the allocation of the at least one data payload.
