AbstractThis paper discusses the coarse frequency acquisition problem and the fine frequency tracking problem for a communication link between a spacecraft and a probe entering the atmosphere of Jupiter. A coded noncoherent MFSK modulation format is assumed along with a severely fading link. Fine frequency tracking is shown to be a more serious problem than coarse acquisition.
