We investigate and compare, over the additive white Gaussian noise channel, different options for updating the error correcting code currently used in space mission telecommand links. Besides some more consolidated proposals, using low-density parity-check codes, we characterize and assess the performance of alternative schemes, based on parallel turbo codes and soft-decision decoded Bose-Chaudhuri-Hocquenghem (BCH) codes.
