    There are many design choices that must be made in the development of a packet radio network. There is usually no single correct choice, and the decisions are dependent on the environment that the network must work in, the requirements for performance and other functionalities, and the cost and other limitations, in addition, as new hardware and software technologies become available, the paramete...

    In this paper we describe the current state of the DARPA packet radio network. Fully automated algorithms and protocols to organize, control, maintain, and move traffic through the packet radio network have been designed, implemented, and tested. By means of protocols, networks of about 50 packet radios with some degree of nodal mobility can be organized and maintained under a fully distributed mo... View full abstract»

    Research on packet switched radio networks requires reconfigurable testbeds with large numbers of readily deployable radios. This motivated the development of a small, low-cost packet radio (LPR) with the flexibility to support extensive network experiments, and to be amenable to tailoring to specific end-use applications. The LPR incorporates a digitally controlled direct sequence minimum shift k... View full abstract»

    The design of a packet radio network must reflect the operational requirements and environmental constraints to which it is subject. In this paper, we outline those features that distinguish the High Frequency (HF) Intra Task Force (ITF) Network from other packet radio networks, and we present a design concept for this network that encompasses organizational structure, waveform design, and channel...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (859 KB)

    Several candidate crosslink communications architectures are described for a packet-switched, low-altitude, multiple satellite system (MSS). One architecture represents a frequency-division approach, in which a cellular concept is combined with dynamic time-domain allocation within a cell. A second architecture uses an unsynchronized space-time division approach consisting of directional antennas ... View full abstract»

    The technology of packet switching over multihop, multiple-access channels has evolved to the point at which its protocols can now support internetwork operation of medium-size networks whose nodes possess some degree of mobility. As regards the needs and challenges of the future operating environment, it is clear that these can be met only by enhancing the packet radio architecture and its protoc... View full abstract»

    Advances in signal processing and architectural design for high-performance packet radio are described. The scope of the work roughly encompasses the data-link and physical levels of standardized layered-network architectures. A hardware-function layering approach is used, including the purposeful design of an interface to provide a structured control environment for a demonstration packet radio. ... View full abstract»

    This paper is devoted to an examination of the key features of spread-spectrum signaling in packet radio networks. The multiple-access capability, capture, and anti-multipath capability of spread spectrum are the principal topics, and the basic features of spread spectrum that enable it to provide these capabilities are illustrated. The interaction between the spread-spectrum signaling and the net... View full abstract»

    The design of packet radio networks involves a large number of issues which interact in a very complex fashion. Many of these pertain to the RF channel and its use, others pertain to the operational protocols. Clearly, no single model can be formulated which incorporates all the necessary parameters and leads to the optimum solution. The one essential element which complicates matters is that, con...

    Multihop packet radio networks present many challenging problems to the network analyst and designer. The communication channel, which must be shared by all of the network users, is the critical system resource. In order to make efficient use of this shared resource, a variety of channel access protocols to promote organized sharing have been investigated. Sharing can occur in three domains: frequ...

  • A stray-insensitive single switched-capacitor ladder realization of an arbitrary order low-pass filter

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):168 - 169
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (288 KB)

    A stray-insensitive biphase SC realization of an all-pole filter of any desired order is first obtained in the ladder form with all the SCs of equal value. These equal-valued SCs are then replaced by a single time-shared SC. Like any other time-multiplexed circuit, this circuit also requires an increased number of clock phases. Thus against an increase in the die area to generate a multiphase cloc... View full abstract»

    The two-dimensional Fourier transform is used to derive an expression for the electric field and impedance associated with a transmission line with a multilayered earth return. The expressions are based on a model of the earth which includes arbitrary horizontal stratification with differing resistivities and permeabilities. A method is proposed to extend the applicability of these results to cond... View full abstract»
