AbstractFor those burst noise channels that can be mode l led by finite state Markov chains (FSMC) this paper presents a 'natural' way of constructing such models and in particular gives a five-state Markov chain as a model of errors occurring on the NASA's Ground Communications Facility (GCF). A Maximum Likelihood procedure applicable to any FSMC is developed for estimating all the model parameters starting from the data of error runs. Then we give a few of the statistics important for estimating the performance of error control strategies on the channel.
