Abstract
OUR PROPOSED EFFORT WILL BE TO: RAISE TECHNICAL ISSUES IN ICEPENETRATION TECHNIQUES AND THE APPLICATION OF METEOR BURST COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY TO EXPENDABLE BUOYS; EVALUATE VARIOUS TECHNICAL APPROACHES IN RESOLVING THOSE ISSUES AS HAVING BEEN PROPOSED BY OTHER WORKERS; EXPLORE ALL AVENUES WHICH MAY LEAD TO SOLUTIONS OF THOSE TECHNICAL PROBLEMS. WE ARE PROPOSING A PHASE I WORK PLAN AS A STRAWMAN LEAVING SUFFICIENT FLEXIBILITY FOR RE-SCHEDULING AND RE-EMPHASIS IN ORDER TO BE EFFECTIVELY COORDINATING WITH CURRENT EFFORT AS NEEDED BY THE SPONSOR. THE SCOPE OF WORK INCLUDES ALSO THE COMPILATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL DATA PERTAINING TO METEOR BURST COMMUNICATIONS IN ARCTIC, AND A SIMULATION OF REPORTBACK SYSTEM OPERATION BY CALCULATING THE INTER-DEPENDENCE AMONG TECHNICAL FEATURES SUCH AS ANTENNA GAIN, TRANSMITTED POWER, BURST RATE, MESSAGE LENGTH ETC., OF THE BUOY AS WELL AS THE SPECIFIED CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MASTER STATION.
