Abstract : In the paper the author analyzes a polling modification providing increased efficiency of a data communication channel employing the ALOHA burst random access method. The primary goal is to increase channel use of the random access mode by employing software control from the host computer without requiring any more hardware at the small terminal. The resulting improvement in channel use can be of benefit to THE ARPANET SATELLITE SYSTEM as well as THE ALOHA SYSTEM. (Author)
