This paper emphasizes on the characteristics and schemes of carrier acquisition and track in high dynamic and high information-rate situation. Carrier acquisition model is analyzed theoretically and the design princi-ple of carrier acquisition is deduced and described clearly. An algorithm for carrier acquisition in high dy-namic and high information-rate situation is provided. This paper also proves the validity of the algorithm and design scheme in high dynamic and high information-rate situation.
