Abstract: In this work we make a detailed look at the algebraic structure of convolutional codes using techniques of linear systems theory. The connection between this concepts help to better understand the properties of convolutional codes, in particular the concepts of controllability and observability of linear systems can be translated into the context of convolutional codes relating these properties with the noncatastrophicity of the codes. I this work examine the output-observability property and we give conditions for this property.
