Abstract : CODEM I is a data terminal set which offers the capability of obtaining extremely reliable (error rates below 0.00001) digital data transmission over an HF radio channel at a data rate equal to or greater than previous systems. The basic concept of the CODEM is the integration of error correcting coding and the modem design in such a manner that channel measurement information can be used to enhance the data reliability. CODEM I is capable of operation at 4800 bps using two independent sidebands and 2400 bps in either a dual frequency diversity mode or within a single voice bandwidth channel. Volume 2 covers the complete test program carried out to determine the performance of the CODEM I equipment. This report includes the results of the field test conducted by the Naval Air Development Center. (Author)
