Cost-Effective, Clean and Modualr Biomass Power System for the Utilization of Farm Animal Waste
Not Available The goal of this Phase I effort is the design of a flexible Codec (COder/DECoder) based upon the theory in recent literature termed Turbo Codes . The Codec shall be applicable for ground base equipment as well as be space qualified to enable incorporation into future space segments. The objective of this multi-phase SBIR is to develop and demonstrate the Turbo codec in an existing product such as our VM-300 UHF satcom terminal. Both Parallel Concatenated Convolutional Codes (PCCC) and Serial Concatenated Convolutional Codes (SCCC) will be considered during the effort. The main Codec parameters, such as encoder architecture, encoder polynomial, interleaver type and size, and iterative decoding algorithms and architectures will be evaluated against performance measures such as BER, block error rate, throughput delay, and packet sizes. The set, or sets, of Codec parameters which are best suited to the Government's candidate multimedia applications; such as e-mail, video conferencing, and internet applications; will be chosen for realization in a Turbo Coded ASIC.
