    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (676 KB)

    Future growth in commercial and military space systems is constrained by technical problems associated with the frequency spectrum, by orbital congestion, and by costs stemming from proliferated terminals. The authors outline an Air Force sponsored research project to design and develop a capability for predicting and analyzing the spectrum/orbital geometry requirements of current/projected U.S. a...

    There has been a significant increase in recent years in the utilization of spaceborne communications-electronics systems to perform a variety of functions including communications, navigation, and surveillance. This growth has resulted in increasing concern over congestion to the geostationary orbit and frequency spectrum. The DOD Electromagnetic Compatibitility Analysis Center (ECAC) has been ta...

    The interference problems faced by nongeostationary satellites may be of major significance. A general discussion indicates the scope of the problems and describes several configurations of importance. Computer programs are described, which are employed by NASA/JPL and the U.S. Air Force Satellite Control Facility to provide interference-free scheduling of commands and data transmission. Satellite... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1024 KB)

    Mutual interferences among geostationary satellite communication systems determine the permitted spacing between satellites and the limits on the capacity of the orbit/spectrum resources available. This paper describes the "Spectrum/Orbit Utilization Program," a computer program for analyzing the mutual interferences among communication satellite systems. Capabilities of the program are described.... View full abstract»

    An overview of the threat of space debris to spacecraft operations is presented for both low altitude spacecraft and geosynchronous operations. These two regimes are treated separately by addressing the following four questions. First, what is the magnitude of the current problem? This is assessed for three classes of debris; those which can be observed, small particles which cannot be detected fr... View full abstract»

  • DAMA - The Management System for UHF SATCOM

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s): 413
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (273 KB)

    A single waveform for Demand Assigned Multiple Access (DAMA) for geosynchronous satellites uniquely provides service capabilities and interoperability. This permits resource pooling of the multiple accesses which, in turn, results in higher efficiency for a given grade of service. Basic DAMA structure is described, followed by a discussion of a proposed control and management architecture which pr... View full abstract»

    Increasing demands for ultra high frequency (UHF) satellite communications (SATCOM) service within the Air Force will require improved control and resource utilization. Satellite communications may be extended to more nets and to larger user communities through the use of time division multiple access (TDMA) systems with demand assignment protocols. This paper describes a demand assignment multipl... View full abstract»

  • A Cost-Effective Approach to Avionics Integration in Multiple Airborne Platforms

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):419 - 423
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (816 KB)

    The cost of avionic systems has been increasing at twice the rate of other areas of defense spending yet their useful lives are only five to seven years. The design life of the aircraft hosting the avionics systems is 20 years. With both the costs and the number of modifications increasing, a cost-effective approach to multiple platform avionics integration must be implemented. The factors driving... View full abstract»

    Over the last ten years, the MITRE Corporation has been involved in the life cycle cost (LCC) evaluation of proposed and implemented systems for the AFSATCOM and MILSTAR Programs. In particular, LCC computer models have been created to represent the logistics structure and associated operation and support costs of airborne satellite communications systems. These LCC Models allow for the representa... View full abstract»

  • Risk Analysis and Satellite Communications Terminals

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):429 - 432
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (507 KB)

    Satellite communications terminals' costs and schedules are driven by a variety of terminal and satellite risks. Understanding the impact of these risks on the terminals is necessary so risks can be planned for and mitigated. A methodology for analyzing these risks and categorizing them as Technical, Schedule, Estimation, and Financial Risks is established. These risks are qualitatively and quanti... View full abstract»

  • Frequency Synthesizer Effects in FSK-FH Communications

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):433 - 437
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (528 KB)

    A frequency hopped (FH) digital communication system requires a receiver to generate a frequency hopping pattern in synchronization with a received carrier hopping pattern. Receiver hopping patterns are typically generated from frequency synthesizers, in which a reference frequency is multiplied up to the desired frequency sequence. In this paper the effects of frequency synthesizer anamolies on t... View full abstract»

  • Waveform Design for Frequency Hopped, Non-Coherent M-ary FSK AJ Communication over Fast Fading Rayleigh Channels

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):438 - 442
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (625 KB)

    The problem of waveform design for frequency hopped, noncoherent m-ary FSK anti-jam communication over fast fading Rayleigh Channels is addressed. For binary FSK signaling over a frequency-nonselective, fast fading Rayleigh channel, an analytical error rate expression is derived as a function of Eb/No, modulation index, diversity order and the ratio of symbol time to fade dec...
