This report describes some results of the project More reliable wireless communications through polar codes, funded in Fiscal Year 2015 by the Naval Innovative Science and Engineering NISE program at SSC Pacific. The purpose of the project is to determine if polar codes can outperform the forward error correction FEC currently used in Navy wireless communication systems. The project team has implemented an advanced decoding method called cyclic redundancy check CRC-aided list decoding. Our simulation results show that polar coding can produce results very similar to the FEC used in the Digital Video Broadcasting - Satellite - Second Generation DVB-S2 standard, and can provide up to 15 percent higher throughput by using code rates not provided in the DVB-S2 standard. In any application for which the DVB-S2 FEC is considered, polar coding with CRC-aided list decoding with N 65536 should also be considered.
