An analysis is presented of the non-tactical mobile radio services in use on Strategic Air Command SAC bases in terms of existing operating requirements, and to offer recommendations for necessary improvements. A discussion of the new spread spectrum systems is also presented. The survey made of non-tactical radio systems in use on various SAC bases indicated that existing systems and conventional equipment, with one exception, meet the present operating requirements. Each network controller is usually able to establish radio contact with his mobile units as required. The exception occurs in bases comprising missile squadrons widely dispersed over irregular terrain. In that situation, the mobile units can be out of range of the network controllers base station. To achieve greater area coverage, each mobile unit should have a channel switching capability to permit operation in its own network and in a central base mobile telephone type net. This central base network must provide effective coverage of all parts of the base, to insure that vehicles can establish contact in emergency conditions. Random access discrete address type systems are not recommended for this application. Author
