In this paper we show the performance of Double-ABBA and ABBA scheme in with an interference management technique. We propose a system with partially cancel the interference which reduce the decoding complexity for higher order Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) system. This interference cancellation scheme is called as interference management scheme. Therefore we use a group decoding technique proposed by Guo and Xia which is known as Partial Interference Cancellation (PIC) group decoding for Double-ABBA and ABBA Quasi-Orthogonal Space Time Coding. Finally we compare the performance of ABBA and Double-ABBA schemes.
