In this dissertation it is shown that the telemetry versions of Feher-patented QPSK (FQPSK-JR) and shaped offset QPSK (SOQPSK-TG) can be interpreted as both cross-correlated, trellis-coded quadrature modulation (XTCQM) and continuous phase modulation (CPM). Based on these representations, both modulations can be detected with near optimal bit error rate performance using a common detector that is formulated as either an XTCQM detector, a traditional CPM detector, or a pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) detector (due to the PAM decomposition of the CPM representations of these modulations). In addition it is shown that the complexity of the XTCQM detector for SOQPSK-TG can be reduced by a factor of 128 with only a 0.2 dB loss in detection efficiency relative to the optimum detector.
Three decoders for STC encoded OQPSK are presented. One decoder has a bit error rate performance that matches the SISO case but with much higher complexity than that of the QPSK decoder. A second decoder matches the simplicity of the decoder for STC encoded non-offset QPSK but with a loss of 3 dB relative to the single-input, single-output (SISO) case. A third decoder matches SISO performance with lower complexity than the first one.
These results for STC encoded OQPSK are extended to STC SOQPSK. It is shown that the maximum likelihood decoder is not computationally feasible. Two suboptimal decoders based on the STC OQPSK decoders are presented. These decoders have much higher complexity than their OQPSK counterparts, and they provide inferior bit error rate performance. In addition, a least squares decoder for STC encoded SOQPSK is presented which is less complex and has better performance (within 1 dB of the SISO bound) than the previous two decoders. This decoder also handles the differential delays that can occur on aeronautical telemetry channels.
