A new decoding algorithm for burst-error-correction is proposed. The proposed algorithm can effectively correct burst errors of length approaching n-k symbols for (n, k) Reed-Solomon (RS) codes. Compared with existing algorithms, the algorithm enables much faster decoding with far less computational complexity.
