' There is strong interest within DoD to utilize high-gain. directional antennas at both the transmitting and receiving end of the link in a dynamic, ad hoc network environment. However, the application of directional antennas (e.g., phased-array or sectorized antennas) in a dynamic network of mobile nodes requires coordination of antenna steering at both(More)
(Detailed treatment of decoding of trellis codes with architec-tures for implementing Viterbi and sequential decoders. Considers source coding as well as channel coding. Presentation tends to be verbal rather than analytical and the book tends to be more of a survey rather than an indepth treatment.) (Discusses trellis codes for AWGN and fading channels.(More)
IEEE the decoding complexity of punctured convolutional codes. The new technique also has the advantage of requiring a smaller path memory than what is needed when decoding punctured codes. This makes the PUM codes and the decoding technique presented here an attractive alternative for applications requiring codes with high rate. ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors(More)
