n Near Shannon-limit performance is possible with
turbo codes, making them suitable for non-real time
n Space-time codes gave strong error correcting
capabilities for fading channels.
n NASA Voyager mission transmission of 2 Mbps data
rates at Eb/N0=2.53 dB uses a concatenation of a
rate 1/2 K=7 convolutional encoder inner code and a
(255, 233) RS outer code with BER=10-6.
n A 48 Mbps satellite TDMA system with BER around
10-11 using a (204, 192) RS code was described by
Berlekamp et al.
