Abstract:

Some changes in operations and technology will be introduced in the post-1975 TACS. Among these will be the use of digital secure voice and data management automation. To permit the development of Air Force ground environment communications requirements for the TACS of this era, estimated total point-to- point data rates are needed. The anticipated TACS operations, with some expected changes, are modeled. The resulting information exchange data rates for the total ground environment is about three megabits. This total data rate is impacted far more because of use of digital, secure voice than because of introducing data management automation. The two operational concepts which are modeled prove to have nearly identical data rate patterns.
