Baseband Performance Degradation due to Interference in the Fixed-Satellite Service

Report ID
TR 86-198
August 01, 1986

This report describes a set of algorithms developed at NTIA for the analytic assessment of interference effects in satellite communication services. These algorithms convert the interference levels at the receiver input into an observable performance degradation of the receiver output, such as, bit errors or distortion of the voice output.
