Efficient error correcting scheme for chaos shift keying signals

An effective error-correction scheme based on normalized correlation for a non coherent chaos communication system with no redundancy bits is proposed in this paper. A modified logistic map is used in the proposed scheme for generating two sequences, one for every data bit value, in a manner that the initial value of the next chaotic sequence is set by the second value of the present chaotic sequence of the similar symbol. This arrangement, thus, has the creation of successive chaotic sequences with identical chaotic dynamics for error correction purpose. The detection symbol is performed prior to correction, on the basis of the suboptimal receiver which anchors on the computation of the shortest distance existing between the received sequence and the modified logistic map’s chaotic trajectory. The results of the simulation reveal noticeable Eb/No improvement by the proposed scheme over the prior to the error- correcting scheme with the improvement increasing whenever there is increase in the number of sequence N. Prior to the error-correcting scheme when N=8, a gain of 1.3 dB is accomplished in Eb/No at 10-3 bit error probability. On the basis of normalized correlation, the most efficient point in our proposed error correction scheme is the absence of any redundant bits needed with minimum delay procedure, in contrast to earlier method that was based on suboptimal method detection and correction. Such performance would render the scheme good candidate for applications requiring high rates of data transmission.
