Abstract:

The purpose of this document is to provide information about the Special Operations Radio Frequency Management System SORFMS model enhancements produced by Systems Exploration, Inc. The enhancements include the incorporation of a Sounder Update SU model and an improved version of the Field Strength FS model. The SU model is an adaptation and translation to FORTRAN of the Army PROPHET Evaluation System APES BASIC model. The FS enhancements involve modification of the field strength modeling algorithms, consequential to efforts to improve the accuracy of this model. The SORFMS is a small, lightweight, stand alone and highly transportable real time propagation assessment and forecasting system which defines natural propagation constraints on HF transmissions and outputs this data in an easily interpreted format. The system includes an HF transmitter, HF receiver, spectrum monitor, frequency management terminal, and a portable computer. The system software, described herein, is installed on the portable computer. kr
