Abstract:

In this paper we review the primary characteristics of the U.S. Department of Defense packet switching networks -- ARPANET, AUTODIN II, and WIN. Special requirements for dedicated defense networks are examined. These include privacy and security, precedence, survivability, availability, and interoperability with other networks. Finally, we discuss some architectural concepts for an all digital integrated voicedata network for defense applications in the 1990s. Author
