AbstractThe Aeronix Phase I task will address the problem of incorporating Imagery/High Speed Fleet Broadcast (HSFB) Receive Only Capability into the Multi-Mission Advanced Tactical Terminal (MATT) System. The significance of this effort is providing additional capability for field users of the MATT system. The MATT system connects military platforms with secure communications networks to provide tactical intelligence information to a variety of users. The current Built 1 MATT design supports UHF line-of-sight and/or UHF satellite communications with reception, decryption and data processing functions for the TADIXS-B and TRAP data links. Imagery uses compression/decompression techniques to transmit video images over limited bandwidth links. HSFB is an upgrade to the current Fleet Broadcast System (FSB) which will operate in the HF frequency band or narrowband in the UHF band. HSFB supports time division multiplexing of multiple data sources into a common data stream at up to 19200 bps. Incorporations of the HSFB UHF signal and imagery data will be addressed by Aeronix Phase I task. Incorporation of Imagery/HSFB in the core MATT system must be done without adversely affecting system performance. The Phase I task will identify the system requirements associated with insertion into MATT. Architecture tradeoffs will be performed and a top level design will be developed. This design will reflect the baseline for the Phase II prototype kit development (build, fabrication, assembly, checkout and integration. )
