In this paper, we propose a novel successive sub-array activation (SSAA) diversity scheme for a massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system in combination with non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA). A single-cell multi-cluster downlink scenario is considered, where the base station (BS) sends redundant symbols through multiple transmit sub-arrays to multi-antenna receivers. An in-depth analytical analysis is carried out, in which an exact closed-form expression for the outage probability is derived. Also, a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) outage approximation is obtained and the system diversity order is determined. Our results show that the proposed scheme outperforms conventional full array massive MIMO setups.
