Abstract:

The Strategic Defense Initiative SDI research efforts are directed at a number of system architecture options involving space, airborne, and terrestrial platforms. A major consideration in the system architecture is the resolution of the battle management BM concept. To resolve the many complex issues, the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization SDIO has recognized the need for communication, command, and control C3 data links between the various platforms. The link or communication channel conditions are relatively benign during peacetime however, in wartime situations, during pre-, trans-, and post-attack periods, the channel conditions degrade rapidly causing severe disruptions in C3. The approaches to battle management, as they are tailored to the various architecture options being considered, will depend heavily upon the communications link integrity. This research is significant and timely in that it relates to the National Test Bed NTB, in support of the SDI full-state development decision process. The NTB program is presently being undertaken by major contractors and involves the design, development, and installation of both experimental and simulation capabilities to form the NTB. This Phase I research effort takes a major step in configuring a Real-Time Stressed Channel Simulator RTSCS to evaluate BMC3 concepts for the SDI program.
