Protocol Simulation of a Pseudo-random, Frequency-Hopped Militrary Satellite Communications Network

Royal Signals and Radar Establishment (RSRE)
Oct 1984 - Oct 1987

The Skynet 4 satellite, launched by Arianne, will be used to provide the UK armed services with an integrated digital communications network. Parts of this network will use frequency-hopped spread spectrum techniques to combat sophisticated electronic jammers. The project has investigated the performance of using the satellite network to transfer X.25 packet data. As a part of the project, an experimental network was connected over a satellite link and performance data was collected.
