TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
We propose an initial architectural and preliminary hardware design study for a high-rate receiver capable of decoding modulation suites specified by CCSDS 413.0-G-1 April 2003 ( and new advanced modulation suites. We propose to detail a design which can provide a throughput of greater than 300 Mbits/sec and 7 bits/sample output.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
The proposed receiver design would be applicable to both near-Earth and deep-space science and exploration applications both now and in the future.

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
The demodulation design is applicable to a variety of space applications including commercial and military satellites. Terrestrial applications include terminals for satellites and wireless telecommunications equipment.
