Abstract
THE EXISTING LITERATURE ON METEOR BURST SYSTEMS IS WIDELY DISPERSED, INCONVENIENT TO OBTAIN AND OFTEN EITHER TOO THEORETICALLY ORIENTED OR TOO SIMPLIFIED TO BE USEFUL TO SYSTEM PLANNERS AND USERS. CONSEQUENTLY, SYSTEM PERFORMANCE MAY BE BELOW EXPECTATIONS. THERE IS A CLEAR NEED FOR AN AUTHORITATIVE, COMPREHENSIVE HANDBOOK OF METEOR BURST SYSTEM PLANNING, DESIGN, INSTALLATION AND OPERATION. THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL PREPARE A METEOR BURST SYSTEM USER'S HANDBOOK WHICH, WHILE AUTHORITATIVE, WILL BE WRITTEN IN A CLEAR, OPEN STYLE TO MAKE IT ACCESSIBLE AND USEFUL TO THE READER. THE HANDBOOK WILL BE SUPPLEMENTED BY SEVERAL COMPUTER PROGRAMS WHICH WILL FACILITATE CALCULATION DEMONSTRATED AVAILABLE TRADE-OFFS. THE PROGRAM WILL BE WRITTEN IN BASIC, AND THE DISKS PROVIDED WILL BE FOR IBM PC AND COMPATIBLE COMPUTERS. THE STUDY WILL DRAW ON THE EXISTING LITERATURE AS WELL AS UNPUBLISHED DOCUMENTS AND THE EXPERIENCE GAINED BY THE PROPOSER IN OPERATING METEOR BURST LINKS OVER A PERIOD OF FIVE YEARS. TECHNIQUES TO IMPROVE SYSTEM THROUGHPUT WILL BE INVESTIGATED AND WILL BE EMPHASIZED.
