Erasure Insertion in RS-Coded SFH MFSK Subjected to Tone Jamming and Rayleigh Fading

Ahmed, S., Yang, L-L. and Hanzo, L. (2005) Erasure Insertion in RS-Coded SFH MFSK Subjected to Tone Jamming and Rayleigh Fading At IEEE VTC'05 (Fall), United States. 25 - 28 Sep 2005. , pp. 917-921.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The achievable performance of Reed Solomon (RS) coded slow frequency hopping (SFH) assisted M-ary frequency shift keying (MFSK) using various erasure insertion (EI) schemes is investigated, when communicating over uncorrelated Rayleigh fading channels in the presence of multitone jamming. Three different EI schemes are considered, which are based on the output threshold test (OTT), on the ratio threshold test (RTT) and on the joint maximum output-ratio threshold test (MO-RTT). The relevant statistics of these EI schemes are investigated mathematically and based on these statistics, their performance is evaluated in the context of error-and-erasure RS decoding. It is demonstrated that the system performance can be significantly improved by using error-and-erasure decoding invoking the EI schemes considered.
