The objectives of this study are 1 to investigate the system-wide implications of using Demand-Assignment Multiple-Access DAMA techniques with communication satellites to serve a diverse community of voice and data communication users, and 2 to explore extensions of the current DAMA techniques to Random Multiple Access RMA techniques which are suitable for data and packetized voice. The major emphasis of the study is exploring system-wide cost-performance tradeoffs in order to determine the most promising DAMARMA techniques, The magnitude of potential cost savings, The optimal satelliteterrestrial mix, and Areas requiring more definitive study.
