Abstract : The trend towards distributed Command and Control systems in Naval platforms necessitates the provision of Local Area Network performance measurement tools and techniques. A special purpose network analyser has been developed within ITD to measure the performance of a Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) network. This paper describes the architecture and operation of the network analyser. This work has been conducted to support the Directorate of Naval Combat Systems Engineering in their Local Area Network and distributed systems analysis.
