Achieving better performance in high mobility scenarios has become an emerging topic for next generation wireless communications. Compared with traditional modulation techniques, the recently proposed orthogonal time frequency space (OTFS) shows outstanding performance over fast fading channels. In this paper, the OTFS system is first represented in the form of precoded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), enabling traditional estimation and equalization techniques to work under fast fading channels. Then, a novel frequency-domain pilot-aided channel estimation scheme is proposed to obtain the channel state information at the receiver. Simulation results show that the new channel estimation scheme works efficiently in different channel scenarios. Meanwhile, the overhead of the proposed scheme is also lower than those of the current popular schemes.
