Abstract:

In the planned DCS digital network, the ability to coordinate clocks placed at geographically separated nodes will be of critical importance. Aside from the characteristics of the clocks themselves, medium and link equipment parameters play dominant roles in determining performance for the system. The emphasis in this report is on troposcatter and line of sight link parameters and their relationship to network clock synchronization. This report includes analysis and discussion of the important physical effects in troposcatter propagation, and a description of experiments and data acquired during a recent measurement program designed to establish a better understanding of the relevant troposcatter and line of sight medium and equipment effects.
