Abstract:

This report presents the design considerations for establishing a recommended communications test link between a Mobile Applications Terminal and the Advanced Command-Control Architectural Testbed at NELC, San Diego. The test link makes use of existing capabilities of the Naval Telecommunications System NTS and interfaces with ARPANET. Phase I of this effort surveyed existing Navy and ARPA communications means which could be used to establish and demonstrate the test link during FY-7778. The communications link analysis was guided by the requirement that the Mobile Terminal and its test link accommodate, to the maximum extent, procedures and interfaces prescribed by the NTS and those of ARPANET. Based on a review of alternative link configurations, the Navy GAPFILLER UHF UHF Satellite System was selected as the desired radio path for the test link. The FLTSATCOM UHF Satellite System, when operational, could replace the GAPFILLER satellite. Phase II of this effort has focused on the design considerations of the recommended link, including the operational, technical, and administrative details of the GAPFILLER satellite and its terminals.
