In a defense scenario, the communicating nodes are mobile and, due to this, the fading channel links become time selective in nature. Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is a promising technique in modern wireless communication systems, and it is employed in a variety of defense ad hoc wireless communication scenarios where nodes are mobile and it is difficult to estimate the channel coefficients perfectly. NOMA contributes to increased spectral efficiency (SE), firstly by enabling fifth-generation new radio deployment in the 3.5 GHz frequency range, and secondly by employing a simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) time switching and power splitting-based cooperative NOMA (C-NOMA) network where simple radio frequency circuitry is used for energy harvesting. NOMA together with the selective decode-and-forward (S-DF) protocol will increase the SE and energy efficiency simultaneously. The outage probability performance is evaluated for various values of the fading severity parameter and node velocity forming the channel error. It is significant to note that digital S-DF-based SWIPT C-NOMA performs much better than an analog amplify-and-forward-based C-NOMA SWIPT system.
