Optimizations of a Turbo-Like Decoder for Deep-Space Optical Communications

Abstract

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has developed a capacityapproaching modulation and coding scheme that comprises a serial concatenation of an inner accumulate pulse-position modulation and an outer convolutional code for deep-space optical communications. Decoding of this serially concatenated pulseposition modulation (SCPPM) code uses a… (More)
