• A Coding Algorithm for Random Access Satellite Systems

      Wu, W. W. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1974-10)
      In satellite communications systems, when a code-division scheme is desirable for random multiple access, specific codes must be constructed for the users in the system to share the same satellite channel. This paper develops a coding algorithm for such purposes by means of a binary matrix. Step-by-step procedures are separately described. An example demonstrates the usefulness of the algorithm, and its advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Finally, a problem for future work is suggested.
