Claim of US Patent No. 10,924,229

14. A system comprising a processor and a non-transitory storage medium storing instructions operative, when executed on the processor, to perform functions including:receiving as input a set of encoded bits;
dividing the set of encoded bits into a plurality of groups;
mapping the plurality of groups, comprising:
mapping a first group to a signal space based modulation format;
mapping a second group to a radiation pattern/polarization modulation (RPM) of a configurable antenna; and
mapping each other group to a control signal for a distinct configurable feature of a transmitter system;
generating a first plurality of constellation symbols selected from a first constellation symbol set according to the mapping of the first group onto the signal space based modulation format;
generating a second plurality of constellation symbols from the first plurality of constellation symbols using a multi-carrier modulation (MCM) mapping function, wherein the second plurality of constellation symbols are selected from a second constellation symbol set having a higher order than the first constellation symbol set;
configuring the RPM of at least one of a plurality of configurable antennas of the transmitter system into one of a plurality of modes according to the mapping of the second group;
configuring at least one additional configurable feature of at least one of the plurality of configurable antennas of the transmitter system according to the control signal of the mapping of at least one of the other groups; and
transmitting a modulated signal from the configured at least one configurable antenna.
