The Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) Telemetry Channel Coding standard must be updated for near-future missions characterized by high data rates and high spectral efficiency. New coding schemes satisfying these requirements are studied and compared in this paper. The attention is focused on turbo codes, product codes and low density parity check codes. Proper design is performed to match required code rates and data frame lengths. Thorough analysis proves these schemes

The work here presented is one of the contributions to the current activities of CCSDS Sub Panel 1B "Channel Coding" where other Member Agencies are also very active.
