Abstract : STRIBUTION, Routing, Digital systemsTACRAHD(Tactical Routing Indicator Lookup and Header Preparation Devices), Tactical routing indicator lookup and header preparation devicesThe Tactical Routing Indicator Lookup and Header Preparation Device, Advanced Feasibility Model (TACRAHD) is designed to accept input data from the Tactical Page Reader. The input data is stored in TACRAHD, while the message header is validated by checks on both its format and security levels, and a set of unique routing indicators is determined. Invalidities are indicated to the operator by means of a front panel display in order that corrective action may be taken, usually through the use of the front mounted typewriter keyboard. Security invalidities are announced by an audible alarm. Upon successful completion of header validation and routing indicator lookup, both message and header are reformatted in accordance with front panel switch selections, and are transmitted to the communications network.
