Abstract : This thesis evaluates the limitations of meteor-burst communications for Navy requirements. The author examines the basic physics of the meteor-burst concept and the history of meteor-burst systems to determine inherent or persistent shortcomings. These findings are then compared to ongoing research and Navy applications for this communications medium. Limitations of meteor-burst communications are discussed with respect to potential Navy applications. Recommendations of possible applications of this technology are provided.
