The Navy is planning to update its operational Information Exchange Subsystems to incorporate Internet Protocols IP to create a more robust and flexible networking environment. There is also a growing demand for Internet connectivity for mail services and access to data available on the World Wide Web WWW. The existing military standards for UHF DAMA do not provide for efficient UHF resource utilization among users wanting WWW type data access characterized by dynamically changing data rate needs for each user. This paper proposes a data link layer protocol that will efficiently handle the variable rate data needs of users. The packet format proposed is similar to that used on an Ethernet local area network. It is recommended that the UHF DAMA military standards currently undergoing revision include a protocol for transmitting and receiving variable rate data.
