Abstract : Groundwave MF-lower HF communication is one candidate for communications between the hardened mobile launchers and/or silos of the new small missile (NSM) and the launcher control centers (LCCS). This report is an analysis of the capabilities of such a communications system in terms of effective communications range for various combinations of data rate, radiated power, error correction coding, and grade of service required. Keywords included: Air correction codes; Groundwave ranges; HF; MF; and Modulation techniques.
