Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to explore possible difficulties and their solutions in transitioning the OTCIXS/TADIXS subsystems from the present Navy UHF Fleetwide Satellite System to the EHF/SHF MILSTAR System. The research provides a description of the mission and operational concepts involved with the OTCIXS and TADIXS subsystems as well as a description of how MILSTAR will process and function as a communication system. After reviewing OTCIXS, TADIXS, and the capabilities MILSTAR will provide, the author discusses under what conditions OTCIXS and TADIXS might consider transitioning to MILSTAR and presents recommendations on how best to utilize MILSTAR's resources.
