Abstract: In the recent times, the interest of reducing the time to retrieve the Clock and Ephemerides Data (CED) has provided an open subject of study to design the structure of the message along with the channel coding scheme of the GNSS signals. As a direct consequence, a new methodology to co-design the navigation message and the channel coding scheme structure is proposed in this paper. This new co-design enables both to reduce the time to retrieve the CED and enhanced error correction capabilities under degraded channel conditions. In order to accomplish such as requirements, codes, which provide both maximum distance separable and full diversity properties under the non-ergodic channel assumption, are designed.
