In this report, we model the networking operation of the Link-11 tactical data network. The model is a Markov chain analysis of the finite state machine that controls the polling sequence in the Link-11 Data Net Control Station. We calculate the net cycle time, the effective throughput, and the channel utilization of the network based on modem performance metrics. The model is based on a number of simplifying assumptions, which include uniform channel conditions for all nodes and a uniform and simplified message generation function for all node. The model also assumes that no collisions in transmission can occur.
