Protocols for use with Satellites Possessing On-Board Processing Capability

Royal Signals and Radar Establishment (RSRE)
Jan 1991 - Dec 1992

The project investigated the choice of protocols for the forth-coming generation of communications satellites with 'on-board processing capability'. The research centred on the design and implementation of robust protocols for both controlling the satellite and for using the satellite as a switching node in a packet data network. The result of this project was to recommend that future satellites do incorporate a packet processor, but that the processor should be simple and robust.
