Abstract : This Defense Communications System Organization (DCSO) Technical Report presents and analyzes selected issued related to the technical integration of the evolving Defense Communications System (DCS). Areas considered are: the introduction of Digital Compression Rate Converters (DCRC), elastic buffer sizing in a plesiochronous DCS, the introduction of the Digital Patch and Access System (DPAS) and the newly developed Telecommunications Service Priority (TSP) system. The report also affirms the need for near-term planning: for control of the Secure Voice System (SVS), for the Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) as applied to the DCS, and for Integrated Data System (IDS) survivability and reconstitution. The central theme of the report is that the DCS Systems Integration Office (Code B200) is the focal point to ensure a formal integrated system design and documentation process for the DCS and for coordinating and controlling DCS subsystem design within the overall DCS architecture. Keywords include: Defense Communications System, Technical Integration DCRC, DPAS, ISDN, TSP, IDS, and SVS.
