Hi
How could I decimate signal that contains NAN values?

I understand you want to decimate signals that contain NaN.
I assume you would like to decimate a signal by a factor r if it contains NaN values.
I have removed the NaN values from the signal and then decimate it as follows.
x is assumed as the signal.
positionNaN = isnan(x);
x(positionNaN) = [];
y = decimate(x,r) ;
Here positionNaN is a logical array of the same size as x containing 1 whenever a NaN value is present otherwise zero.

Hi Ajay
My signal is time seriese and I need to keep the position of each values including NANs. So I can not easily removing NANs.
Thanks,

You could make the signal zero whenever NaN appears. There by keeping the position.
x(positionNaN) = 0;

Can't replace NAN data with any arbitary values. They have to be NAN after decimate either.
