SINCE WORLD WAR II, thousands of medium and large-scale scientific and business data-processing computers have been placed in governmental and industrial service throughout the country. With this growth has come the inevitable marriage of computing machinery to wire and radio communications. The need for more reliable and efficient forms of data communications is at the present time greater than ever. Efficient bandwidth utilization and reliability have been major design objectives of the high-capacity Kineplex system. The name Kineplex has been adopted because the system employs kinematic filters in its detection process and is most frequently employed in multiplex configurations. This paper will describe, in brief, the Kineplex system concept. White-noise performance will be compared with an ideal phase-shift system and with actual performance data resulting from tests conducted on a typical narrow-band Frequency Shift (FS) system. Kineplex will be shown, in principle, to make the best possible use of transmission bandwidth.
