Talk:Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS)
I am trying to extract bit stream of ACARS signals. What I have found after MSKMinimum-Shift Keying (When Shift/Bd = 0.5. It is impossible to get this ratio to be lower than 0.5, hence it is called the 'Minimum' shift.) demodulation is that the output bitstream is something like this: "111111111111111111111100000000000001101000111010001100111111"
The above bit stream is exactly the same in all ACARS signals that are demodulated.
By the way, in the ACARS standard, it is claimed that the header is some thing like 2b 2a 16 16 01 (in hexadecimal) or in bits stream sense: 0010101100101010000101100001011000000001
in the standard it is mentioned that the demodulated bitstream is applied to an NRZI decoding
after I apply NRZI decoding to my pure bitstream it changes to: "111111111111111111111101111111111110100011011000110101011111"
My question is that, where the header is ? No such header exists !!!
Can anyone please help me in this regard ?
does this help ?

Thanks For your response
But indeed the problem I am facing with is not mentioned anywhere. At first, I have been thinking that my demodulation method is not optimum. Using W61PC card, I have been able to compare my demodulated bits to that of Wavecom. The amazing thing is, the latter was exactly like the former. So there is no fault in the demodulation method. Wavecom, extracts the same bits in the beginning of the burst which I have reported as : "111111111111111111111100000000000001101000111010001100111111"
The problem is , after NRZI operation, no sign of SOH or any other header is observable on the demodulated signal.
I am really confused after spending a month on every possible operation, which would lead me to a possible answer. But unluckily I found nothing.
I think someone with experience in this regard would have a major impact to the solution.
I am looking forward for a kind response on this problem.
Thanks to you all.
I Found the answerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!!!!!!!!!
You want something done, you've gotta do it yourself!
I can share my result via email request !!!
