Abstract:

This interim report deals with the initial activities under an effort to develop an interactive computer model for analysis and design of digital communications systems. In this report concepts are formulated and described for a model for Interactive Design and Analysis of Communication Systems MIDACS. Methods of approach for concept formulation are described, examples of previous modeling approaches are presented, and characteristics of the MIDACS concept are documented. Various interactive approaches are shown along with general hardware and software requirements. The formulated interactive concept includes the computer, display devices, and other inputoutput devices. Mathematical modeling approaches are described including standard Monte Carlo techniques, deterministic methods, and analytical models. The recommended modeling structure includes a modified Monte Carlo technique to minimize computer time for certain communication system performance measures. A multi-level analysis structure is proposed which includes a hierachy for the physical model combined with a hierarchy of analysis levels which permits greatest computer use flexibility. Author
