The specifications for such a system are defined and utilized as a tool to aid in the technology development selection process. A number of system types were preliminarily explored and descriptions are presented here. A tradeoff of applicable technologies is discussed. Based upon this tradeoff a selection of the most appropriate technology for further development is presented.
