Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel method for demodulating Pulse Position Modulation (PPM) signals based on Reed-Solomon decoding algorithm. It is shown that the proposed technique outperforms the conventional demodulating method base on Reed-Solomon algorithm in case that the PPM signals are corrupted by Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN).
