Abstract:

ACCESSThe report presents the results of an effort devoted to the development of network control techniques for a Time Division Multiple Access TDMA Tactical Satellite Communications System. The study is subdivided into two major phases. Phase I is devoted to the development of the network control system and the associated computer program required for its implementation. Phase II studies the extension of the approach to network control techniques unrestricted by the capabilities of the existing modem and computer. In Phase II, after defining basic satellite, earth terminal and network parameters, the TDMA frame formats and enhanced control techniques are described. Additional topics covered are improvements in modem and satellite design, computer selection and extended software features. Modified author abstract
