AbstractAdvanced Military Satellite Communications Systems providing communications capability supporting projected minimum essential military wartime communications that will accommodate force message distribution, force direction and force report back, and force/force or group-to-group communications. These dedicated communications resources must be continuously available to the wide variety of military users. It is necessary, therefore, that the command/control implementation of these systems be capable of (a) long-term resource allocation to fulfill user requirements with a minimum of delay and system overhead, and (b) insuring system capability to fulfill real-time users service requests. Anticipated operational use indicates that a considerable amount of day-to-day control will be required to coordinate the user access to communications, to provide communications for internal user network control, and to support routine system maintenance activities. This paper discusses a candidate centralized system management and distributed control framework that provides a system operations capability meeting the interconnection requirements needed for such a military type communications satellite system.
