Network coded cooperative (NCC) systems have recently attracted attention with their high spectral and power efficiency. In this paper, we investigate the information theoretical limits of NCC systems in the presence of imperfect channel state information (CSI). Specifically, we derive exact outage probability and finite-SNR diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) for general multisource multirelay NCC wireless networks over Rayleigh fading channels. Numerical results are presented to verify our analytical derivations and provide insight into the impact of imperfect CSI on the NCC system performance.
