AbstractNASA is now actively planning entry probe missions for the outer planets. Such an entry probe requires a new telemetry link design. A probable modulation for this link is a continuous phase, narrow-band FSK (or PCM/FM), and this paper reports on simulations which can be used to estimate convolutional code performance with mild fading on such a channel. Simulated decoding has been performed for a range of signal-to-noise ratios on the PCM/FM channel with various fading characteristics.
