Abstract:

The major effort under the contract during this reporting period was devoted to preparations for a live demonstration of the SATNET technology. This demonstration will be part of a session at the National Telecommunications Conference NTC. The demonstration will include packet speech and facsimile transmission between the conference site and University College London UCL. COMSAT is presently coordinating the necessary hardware and software development between the major participants. Another task, wideband system coordinationintegration has concentrated on additional computer simulations of candidate frequency plans for the EISN carrier. Meetings were held at Western Union in April, and again in July, to receive the most recent planning information for the EISN communication link. This information was incorporated into the simulation model and additional simulation experiments were performed.
