Abstract : The thesis examines the use of the TYC-5 as an AUTODIN terminal, working from a remote location into AUTODIN. Emphasis is placed on examining the various transmission mediums used to support the TYC-5. Included are cable, micro-wave, tropospheric scatter, high frequency radio and satellite. Required accessories; operational experiences; expected reliabilities and efficiencies; and operational parameters/constraints are examined for each medium. The shortfalls that exist today in providing each of the mediums are identified. The responsibilities for providing support to eliminate these shortfalls are also identified. The conclusions show the preferred TYC-5/transmission medium combination to be with cable/micro-wave. The most critical shortfalls are also identified. The twelve recommendations are actions that should be taken to reduce shortfalls and provide for better high data rate communications from a remote area. (Author)
