Abstract : This report covers a multi-task program directed at improving tactical voice communications by improving signaling and supervisory control (SSC) through the use of semiautomatic signaling. Tasks in the program include computer simulation of communications traffic, laboratory and field experiments with semiautomatic signalers, and a trade-off analysis of signaler functions as well as preparation of the SSC plan. Indications are that the implementation of SSC incorporating semiautomatic signalers should result in greatly improved tactical voice communications by reducing the time needed for supervisory traffic, by using faster and more positive call establishment, and by allowing a more efficient sharing of available frequencies and equipment. No major changes in either communications procedures or existing radio equipment are proposed. Primary emphasis has been placed on voice nets, although many forms of data and record traffic can benefit similarly.
