This report deals with one aspect of SAMSO RD program into advanced space communications networks. It presents the results of a study to consider the design of data management algorithms to optimize performance measures and resource allocations within network and user demand constraints. Included are considerations of message distribution modes e.g., packet switching algorithms , information control e.g., flow control and routing algorithms and multiple access techniques. In the context of this study, data management algorithms consist of all the rules which govern information flow within an envisioned multiple-satellite multiple-mission space communications network. Such data management algorithms permit the orderly interaction of information sources, intelligent satellite nodes which form the communication networks, and the information users. A generalized satellite-based information network model is developed. Generic characteristics of the network information processing and transmission resources are identified as the basis for an evolutionary space communications network.
