Abstract:

This report is the final of a series that document the study, analysis, and evaluation of the use of advanced communications technology in the Defense Communications System. The purpose of the overall study was to project the capability of potential transmission media into the future, and to assess their comparative utility for DSC application in the years 2000 and beyond. The final phase of the study contained in this report addresses the use of millimeter wave LOS radio and fiber optic transmission in central Germany and Hawaii. The system performance was modeled using the parameter of Average Network Availability. Network cost and performance was evaluated for a number of different configurations, and under a variety of stress conditions. Author
