Abstract:

THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS AN UNUSUAL AND INNOVATIVE RESPONSE TO THE SBIR SOLICITATION N86-33 REQUIRING THE CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF A FIBEROPTIC BASED LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN) FOR RADAR DISTRIBUTION. THE PROPOSAL IS TO MARRY A DRAFT NATO STANDARD DIGITIZED VIDEO FORMAT (STANAG 4217) WITH AN EVOLVING U.S. NAVY 125-MBPS FIBER-OPTIC LAN STANDARD (SAFENET II) TO PROVIDE A LOW-RISK, NATO-COMPATIBLE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM. THE SAFENET II STANDARD IS BASED UPON THE AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARD INSTITUTE'S FIBER DISTRIBUTED DATA INTERFACE (ANSI/ FDDI) PROTOCOL WHICH HAS BOTH SYNCHRONOUS (DIGITIZED RADAR) AND ASYNCHRONOUS (RCI CONTROL, IFF AND TRACK FILE INFORMATION) MESSAGE PROTOCOLS AND WILL SOON HAVE LSI CHIP SETS. THIS APPROACH CAPITAL IZES ON THOUSANDS OF TECHNICAL MANHOURS INVESTED BY THE NATO INDUSTRIAL ADVISORY GROUP (NIAG), ANSI AND THE USN LAN COMMITTEE AND USES A SYNETICS-DEVELOPED LAN COMPUTER SIMULATION MODEL FOR PERFORMANCE EVALUATION.
