The work presented here describes an exhaustive search for minimum peak sidelobe level (PSL) binary codes, combining several devices for efficiency. These include combinatoric tree search techniques, the use of PSL-preserving symmetries to reduce search space, data representations and operations for fast sidelobe computation, and a partitioning scheme for parallelism. All balanced 64-bit minimum PSL codes are presented, and the upper limit on known consecutive lengths to have PSL = 4 codes is extended to 70. In addition, a technique for determining balance properties of a code for given PSL-preserving transformations is developed.
