Abstract
THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTONOMOUS, DISTRIBUTED SYNCHRONIZATION CONCEPT FOR FUTURE SPACE-BASED MILITARY SYSTEMS IS PROPOSED. THE INABILITY OF CONVENTIONAL GROUND-BASED "CENTRALIZED" SYNCHRONIZATION TECHNIQUES TO MEET THE SURVIVABILITY REQUIREMENTS OF THESE SYSTEMS IS DISCUSSED AND A SPECIFIC AUTONOMOUS-DISTRIBUTED SYNCHRONIZATION (ADS) APPROACH IS DESCRIBED. THE PROPOSED WORK WILL SPECIFY THE ADS ALGORITHMS REQUIRED TO CALCULATE TIME OF DAY AND FREQUENCY STANDARD ADJUSTMENTS, THE FREQUENCY WITH WHICH SYNCHRONIZATION PROCEDURES ARE CONDUCTED AND THE TYPES OF CLOCKS TO BE EMPLOYED. THE WORK PROPOSED INCLUDES: DETERMINATION OF ADS PERFORMANCE THROUGH THE MODELING OF SYNCHRONIZATION PROCEDURES, NODAL CLOCKS AND THE SPACE COMMUNICATION NETWORK.
