    Communications system command and control is essential to effective management of a dynamic communications system. An evolutionary concept is described, which has been proven in practice, of a method of controlling a dynamic communications system, of some of the equipments developed for this purpose, and of the major advantages of reporting and displaying system and equipment quality-control infor...

    The efficiency as measured by data rate per unit bandwidth of certain digital modulation systems is compared. The systems considered are frequency modulation (FM), phase modulation (PM), and linear modulation. The achievable bits per cycle in digital PM and amplitude modulation (AM) at a given signal-to-noise ratio and error rate have been known for some time. In digital FM this quantity can be ma...

  • Transionospheric Propagation of FM Signals

    Communication links to earth satellites are not usually affected adversely by propagating through the ionosphere. However, the nonlinear variation of the refractive index with frequency causes a dispersion which can result in significant signal distortion under certain circumstances. Such a case occurs, for example, when a wide-band frequency-modulated (FM) signal propagating at the lower carrier ... View full abstract»

    Conventional frequency-modulation (FM) detectors show a marked decrease in output S/N below an input S/N of 5 to 10 dB. This threshold effect is caused by "clicks" or phase slips of multiples of π. This effect is related to a normalization (clipping) which is very beneficial at high View full abstract»

  • On a Solution to the Second-Order Phase-Locked Loop

    A solution of the stationary, mod-2π-reduced phaseerror probability density function for the second-order phase-lock loop is derived, based on a mean square fit to a certain unknown conditional expectation term. The resulting phase variance obtained from this density function yields an error that is negligible for \sigma _{\phi}^{2} \leq 1 and an error ... View full abstract»

    A method is presented for analyzing intermodulation (IM) spectra in limiting amplifiers using a statistical approach. Engineering approximations are derived for the case of a large number of input signals. The accuracy appears to be good down to seven signals. The approach permits analysis of arbitrary locations (in frequency) of the input signals. Possible ways of reducing IM interference in limi... View full abstract»

  • Buffer Considerations for Data Compression of Nonstationary Video Data

    Including a buffer storage into a telemetry data compression system has proven to be both a requirement and a nemesis. Some video compression simulation results which help define buffer requirements for transmitted bit-rate reductions of 2:1 and 3:1 are summarized. The zero-order predictor algorithm with a buffer-controlled variable aperture was found to provide both efficient buffer utilization a... View full abstract»

    In coded telemetry systems symbol synchronization must be performed at low symbol signal-to-noise ratios ( ST/N_{0} ) with negligible degradation from the perfect synchronization case. A digital transition tracking synchronizer which operates with less than 0.03-dB degradation at ST/N_{0} = -3 dB and at rates of 5.6 bi... View full abstract»

  • The PAR Meter: Characteristics of a New Voiceband Rating System

    The peak-to-average ratio (PAR) meter provides a single number measure of the quality of circuits used for transmitting voiceband data signals. A PAR system consists of a generator and a receiver connected to opposite ends of a transmission network to be tested. The generator transmits a precise repetitive pulse through the system, and each pulse is dispersed by the distortions that it encounters.... View full abstract»

    Two 15-kHz channels positioned symmetrically in the 60-108-kHz-channel group are used for the transmission of two different programs or one stereophonic program. A new carrierfrequency compandor reduces noise by about 20 dB. The channel group is loaded with a mean power of 500 μW. View full abstract»

    A previous paper [3] dealt with seven receiver spurious response mechanisms. This paper shows that two of those mechanisms (intermediate-frequency harmonic and mixer p - q) can give responses at identical frequencies. A measurement method is described which allows the predominant mechanism to be identified, and it is shown that either response may predominate in practice. View full abstract»
