Although various measurements have indicated that mobile satellite channels are not memoryless, most related coded system performance analysis assumes perfect interleaving is in place so that the effect of channel memory can be completely ignored. This paper presents a systematic method to accurately and efficiently predict the performance of errors-and-erasures or errors-only decoders for block-coded systems in general mobile satellite channels. Numerical results are provided to validate our analytic results.
