    There are two major requirements, increased connectivity and bandwidth, for both military and commercial communications. Running counter to this is the high cost of installing new fiber and replacement of legacy systems. Wave division multiplexing and optical networks built using this technology are emerging as a leading solution to achieving higher bandwidths and channel capacity on existing inst...

    The satellite ground station environment is one in which the availability of the equipment is normally paramount. Satellite contacts may be scheduled at any time and the data being down-linked may be irreplaceable if the equipment in the ground station is not available to receive it. The satellite may not be able to carry out its mission if necessary data is not up-linked when needed because of eq... View full abstract»

    The serial search DS code acquisition in a nonselective time-variant channel is analyzed. The stationary random signal amplitude is supposed to be constant during each single/multiple dwell test interval and independent of that on any other test interval. The dependence of the mean acquisition time on the random amplitude is eliminated by averaging over the given amplitude distribution. As an exam... View full abstract»

    The phrases communications architecture and C4I architecture are frequently used to describe a variety of capabilities, networks, systems or combinations of them. However, there is little uniformity of understanding in architectural discussions, because the frames of reference are seldom common. This paper uses elements of the International Standards Organization (ISO) functional characteristics o... View full abstract»

    A new traffic shaping mechanism for congestion control in ATM networks is studied. Performance measures such as the burstiness reduction factor and the mean cell waiting time of the proposed shaper are discussed. In this current exploratory stage of the study, the shaper is used to shape the different mixes of multimedia traffic as well as self-similar LAN-LAN traffic View full abstract»

    We previously presented a novel multichannel linear equalization scheme for a TDMA based cellular/PCS communication system commensurate with the US IS-136 standard. This scheme assumes at least two different channels with oversampling at each channel. For a given channel, it was shown that the frequency response of the associated RF multipath channel may be well approximated over the raised cosine... View full abstract»

  • Combating low UHF satcom downlink margin

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):1438 - 1442 vol.3
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (464 KB)

    Relative comparison of the effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) from Fleet Satellite (FLTSAT) against the UHF Follow-On (UFO) satellites generally shows equal or reduced downlink signal power from the UFO transponders, far less than the anticipated 3.5 dB increase in specified narrowband channel EIRP. Thus we have a relative measurement between what the warfighter sees today (FLTSAT) and what... View full abstract»
