The so-called chief executive officer problem suggests that the source message can be recovered at the destination by merging a set of corrupted replicas forwarded by multiple relays, as long as these replicas are sufficiently correlated with the original message. In this paper, we build on Slepian-Wolf's correlated source coding theorem to design a simple, yet efficient power allocation scheme for a multirelay system, in which the direct link is unavailable to convey information. In such a system, the replicas forwarded by the relays are allowed to contain intra-link errors due to previous unreliable hops, and the destination is supposed to retrieve the source message by jointly decoding all received replicas. Importantly, the proposed power allocation is asymptotically optimal at high signal-to-noise ratio. (AU)
