    A field test has been made in order to better understand the digital mobile radio channel. At the mobile receiver (450 MHz, 1200 bits/s) recordings were made of the digital signal and the field strength. These recordings were later analyzed by a computer. Some existing models for digital channels have been tested. Theoretically motivated probability density functions for the fading envelope have a... View full abstract»

    NASA's application technology satellites (ATS) were used in a series of communications and position-fixing experiments with automotive vehicles, ships, and aircraft. Applications of the communications were demonstrated and evaluated for public services including law enforcement, search and rescue, medical emergency, and for commercial uses in the land and maritime transportation industries. The te... View full abstract»

    Two continuous phase constant envelope modulation schemes are considered for use in digital mobile radio communication systems. These two schemes, duobinary coded minimum shift keying (MSK) and tamed frequency modulation (TFM), use partial response signaling to achieve efficient power spectrum. Therefore, they are suitable candidates for the application of digital data transmission via mobile radi... View full abstract»

    Last decade's major expansion of mobile communications has prompted investigations by NASA into the potential role of space technology in alleviating spectrum crowding and other constraints resulting from this growth. A critical survey is presented of the status and the technical and economic conclusions of these investigations, including a perspective of the relative roles of private and public e...

    Some of the factors affecting the design of a binary signaling format for high capacity wide area digital radio paging are discussed. Topics considered are synchronization, battery economy techniques, error control coding to ensure acceptable success and false call rates, and the choice of bit rate. Paging successful and false call rates of typical format are predicted for moving and stationary pa... View full abstract»
