Multiple Carrier Code Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA) system performances are evaluated with the MMSE (Minimum Mean Square Error) equalization algorithm in this framework. The system's performance is augmented with the assistance of meta-heuristic optimization algorithms. Nature-inspired Krill Herd algorithm with an oppositional-based learning method (OKH) is used to improve performance. And the system was also implemented using Kinetic Gas Molecule Optimization (KGMO) algorithm. KGMO is also a metaheuristic-based process that operates with the concept of thermodynamics. Procuring wireless channel details is a difficult task in mobile wireless systems. Both algorithms help in obtaining channel information. Multiple inputs and multiple outputs (MIMO) are primary in existing and ensuing wireless communications. Space-time coding (STC) is integral to multi-antenna operations, mainly concerned with integrity. The proposed optimisation algorithms based on the multi-carrier CDMA system using space-time coding are implemented, and the BER parameter is evaluated. 2 transmitting and 1 receiving antennae are considered in the proposed system. Simulations are done in Rayleigh fading channel.
