It is common in data transmissions that some information is more important than others. This is especially true in space communications where mission critical information or science data are high priority. In this work, we propose a simple yet constructive scheme to send high priority data reliably and efficiently using Luby transform (LT) codes. The new proposed scheme modifies the conventional LT encoder to send high priority data as a degree 1 and 2 so that high priority data can be quickly resolved and very likely recovered before a decoder stops. Preliminary results show that a carefully designed degree distribution of high priority data increases the likelihood of receiving high priority information while having negligible performance impact on data with lower priority. The performance of the proposed scheme is evaluated and compared with the conventional LT approach with the same parameters under a range of erasure error rates.
