Abstract:

The Remote Site Radar System used by the Indonesian Air Force presently uses voice as its sole means of communication. A data communication network which will help store, manipulate and share data in an effective and efficient manner is needed. This thesis proposes two alternatives for a preliminary design of a computer network to support this need. It suggests how existing communication resources such as telephones, microwave links and satellite systems can be used to support the network. The first design, called terrestrial Microwave Radar Data Link, is based on a terrestrial microwave relay. The alternative design, called Fully Connected Satellite Radar Data Link, is based on a satellite microwave relay. Both designs are analyzed as to their security, reliability and economic impact.
