AbstractThis paper represents some considerations resulting from work conducted during a Navy study of secure voice system alternatives and the development of military communication systems. It begins by identifying a set of attributes for a “goal” military communication system. The paper then presents a realizable communication system concept which could be used as a basis for a future system design. The concept is based on an embedded multiple rate system where a basic mode, supported at the lowest transmission rate, is enhanced using additional transmission capacity, when it is available, to support a higher rate. The conclusion discusses the impact of this concept on some of the functions a military communication system must perform.
