Abstract:

The thesis contains the analysis of data of message traffic loads on the Naval Communications Fleet Multi-channel Broadcast System and results of a simulation model of the system under various channel alignments. Distributions of interarrival times, message lengths and requests for screens and reruns are determined from the data. These distributions are used in a simulation model of the Broadcast System. The model is used to compare the average delays caused by backlogs of messages when two channels devoted to a given ship-type are a used in series with the second channel used to rebroadcast messages from the first channel after a one hour delay, and b both channels are used in parallel to transmit first-run messages. The results of the simulation show that backlogs are reduced considerably by running the two channels in parallel at all times. Author
