Abstract:

The feasibility of a multiple-cockpit combat mission trainer CMT aircraft simulator is investigated. It is shown that a cable network can be used to connect many CMTs over a large geographical area. The cable channel is divided into a critical portion and noncritical portion. The critical portion uses a time division multiple access TDMA technique to broadcast CMT position and attitude to all other CMTs in the network. The noncritical data portion uses a random access protocol to broadcast weather, threat information, etc. An analysis technique is presented which easily evaluates the random access protocol. Suggestions for further research in this area are proposed. Author
