Abstract:

Groundwave MF-lower HF communication is one candidate for communications between the hardened mobile launchers andor silos of the new small missile NSM and the launcher control centers LCCS. This report is an analysis of the capabilities of such a communications system in terms of effective communications range for various combinations of data rate, radiated power, error correction coding, and grade of service required. Keywords included Air correction codes Groundwave ranges HF MF and Modulation techniques.
