It is the underlying assumption of this report that the introduction of satellites into Navy communication systems must be an oderly process involving a change in character of HF capabilities, rather than their elimination. Using HF as an alternate propagation means to satellites will provide a higher communications availability--the probability of having communication circuits when they are needed. The criterion of success, therefore, is the maintenance of adequate communications availability throughout the time period 1970-1990. The primary objective of this report is to compare eight feasible systems, described herein by system functional block diagrams, for the transition period. Comparisons are made on the basis of the capability of each system to make available communications on demand. This report complements NELC Technical Notes on the TRED program and supports the TRED concept formulation effort.
