An algorithm for automation of the maximin procedure in making reliable decisions at tropospheric propagation of radio waves

V. I. Rudakov


A new algorithm for automation of a maximin procedure is suggested. The algorithm helps make a reliable decision about the presence of a stable level of a signal, subject to fast, slow, and temporary fading, at tropospheric propagation of radio waves. The algorithm ensures a prescribed information reliability of communication systems, when transmitting low- and high-speed information flows, in terms of a preset error probability.
