dc.description.abstract We describe a communication channel for a microwave-propelled sail, a novel concept for a deep-space scientific probe. We suggest techniques to recover the great loss introduced by the large distances, and we have conducted various simulations to understand the effects on the performance of the system. Possible disruption in the channel by high-energy solar flares, which increase the error in the estimation of the received signal, is accounted for. We developed the simulation for a full communication system on an additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel, including the random-time solar-flare disturbance. We show that turbo codes can be exploited that perform very well at low SNRs and have high coding gain. en_US
