Erasure-generation techniques are investigated in conjunction with symbol interleaving as methods to improve the performance of meteor-burst communication systems. Erasure generation via Viterbi’s ratio-threshold test (RTT) and a Bayesian scheme are both considered. It is found that a system using fixedrate coding, interleaving, and erasure generation can(More)
An adaptive transmission technique for frequency-hop packet transmission is described and its performance is evaluated for certain channels with unknown or time-varying parameters. The power in the transmitted signal and the rate of the error-control code are adapted in a way that provides energy-efficient communications. The slow-frequency-hop packet(More)
