Abstract:

Coding schemes for the correction of random errors or burst errors for fixed block length digital data words are presented in this report. The word format considered is a 48-bit word with six 8-bit subwords, and the codes developed are for the correction of errors in two subwords with a third subword for the parity bits. Several codes are considered and analyzed for their error correcting capability. Also, computer simulations were carried out on several of these codes, and a burst length 5-error correcting coding system was mechanized. Performance gains based on comparisons with uncoded, coherent frequency-shift- keyed system are examined.
