Abstract : Various reports have indicated that changes are needed in the existing Naval tactical voice radio networks to improve current performance and to provide future operational requirements. The existing networks are of the dedicated type and the network supervisory control functions are carried out by voice transmission. It is in these two areas that changes are being considered; specificially, switched networks to replace the dedicated ones and electronic hardware to perform the network supervisory control functions. The basic objective of this program was to develop an analytical methodology that could be used to quantitatively predict the performance of the tactical voice radio networks for a range of alternatives that encompass the areas of switched networks and electronic control. This report describes the program in four levels of detail; namely, a brief executive summary, a broad nonmathematical overview, a more detailed narrative with mathematical summaries and a complete mathematical documentation of the results produced.
