Abstract
ANALYTICS HAS DEVELOPED A TECHNIQUE WHICH WE CALL MHC, OR MODIFIED HUFFMAN CODING. OUR PROPOSED UTILIZATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS INNOVATIVE TOOL WOULD REQUIRE NO MODIFICATIONS TO EXISTING NAVAL C3 SYSTEMS. THIS PHASE I SBIR WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY AND USABILITY OF A UNIQUE FORM OF ENCODING THAT WE HAVE DEVELOPED. OUR CONCEPTUAL DESIGN FOR THIS SYSTEM, WE BELIEVE, CAN COMPRESS TYPICAL NAVAL MESSAGE CONTENT FIELDS BY A FACTOR OR 70-80 PERCENT -THAT IS, AN APPROXIMATE 4:1 TO 5:1 REDUCTION ON COMMUNICATIONS BANDWIDTH, WITHOUT SACRIFICING INTEROPERABILITY OR COMPATIBILITY WITH EXISTING NAVAL AND DOD SYSTEMS, WITH JINTACCS, AND POSSIBLY ENHANCING CRYPTOGRAPHIC STRENGTH IN THE PROCESS. ANALYTICS ENVISIONS THE PROPOSED MHC CONVERTER TO BE IN THE FORM OF A PREPROCESSOR THAT CAN BE EMBEDDEDIN A STANDARD NAVY COMMUNICATIONS TERMINAL, OR PLACED ON A LINE BETWEEN A TERMINAL AND THE C-3 PROCESSING SYSTEM. IN THIS EMBODIMENT, THE MHC CONVERTER WOULD BE TRANSPARENT TO THE USER AND TO MILITARY COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS INCLUDING AUTODIN, DDN, JANAPS AND RELATED SYSTEMS. THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I SBIR IS TO ANALYZE, TEST, AND SIMULATE OUR UNIQUE CONCEPT FOR DATA COMPRESSION. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH EFFORT WILL CULMINATE IN A DEVICE THAT WILL MINIMIZE THE NEGENTROPHY OF THE TOTAL NAVAL COMMUNICATION SYSTEM.
