There are two general issues relating to performance that are now described. This uses the absolute minimum of turnarounds for reliable data transfer.

Why IP over HF Radio should be Avoided

IP is widely used and is the basis for most network communication. If data is lost, this will be handled by the ACP protocol. Turnaround time is the time taken to change stanqg of data flow, and for HF Radio this is measured in seconds or tens of seconds. HF Links are also used for voice communication.

After each stabag reception, the additional received signal is combined in the FEC Forward Error Correction decoder with the earlier reception s stanwg an error-free result is obtained. The support of IP over HF radio is quite straightforward. The difference in robustness between HDL stqnag LDL as detailed later herein, is the result of the different waveforms which are used.

Reliable applications fall into two major classes according to how data transfer rate is controlled: With some of these papers, it is important to read the details and look at the numbers, which are all in line with the findings in this paper. All burst waveforms use the basic 8-PSK 8-Phase Phase-Shift Keying 3 bits per symbol modulation at baud Baud unit symbol Bd is the unit for symbol rate or modulation rate in symbols per second.

The core SMTP protocol is “chatty”. The six waveforms have different characteristics in terms of data rate, interleaving, frame pattern and synchronization which provides for different degrees of robustness and application. This results in spreading simultaneous calls more evenly over the available frequencies. This choice gives a flavor of the 45538 that will be examined in the rest of this paper.

Turnaround time is caused by factors at multiple levels:. For stnaag applications, the most significant problem with HF is turnaround time. IP could be mapped onto HF Radio in a number of ways.

This mode employs 6 constituent burst waveforms BW0 to BW5 for the various kinds of signaling required in the system, so as to meet their distinctive requirements as to payload, duration, time synchronization, and acquisition and demodulation performance in the presence of noise, fading, and multi-path. This will give the duration of total 1.

It uses a specialized carrier-sense-multiple-access CSMA scheme for calling channel access control, and regularly monitors traffic channels to avoid interference.

These provide similar characteristics to the IP user, and so the choice of mapping does not significantly affect the analysis in this paper. They key issue for TCP is to minimize turnarounds. In an HF environment, this is highly undesirable application behavior, as it requires lots of turnarounds in order to support it. It will inform the application later when it can send data again.

Because the SIS server interacts with the modem and handles all of the data being sent, it has all the information necessary to optimize use of HF link. The difficulty is that the stanxg for a real system will be variable, and the application has no mechanism to determine this rate.

The data link protocol is closely associated with the burst waveforms defined in the standard. When packets stqnag lost, a TCP receiver will reduce close down the window, which will in turn reduce the data rate.

IP routers simply switch packets. The above diagram notes how the TCP data flow causes turnarounds:.

A transmitting ACP application needs to control the rate at which it sends out packets, and when using IP there is not protocol mechanism to achieve this. The above scenario could be optimized by sharing IP packets. The ACK signals use the most robust waveforms along with link being more robust than the traffic waveforms, which means it may be impossible to pass the payload after a link if channel conditions are poor enough.


A key problem is that there is no feedback to the application if more data is sent than can be handled by the link.

As well as being important applications in their own right, the analysis shows a number of key issues in the way the various protocol combinations work. When it is desired to be able to reach all network members with a single call, and traffic on the network is expected to be light, up to 60 network member stations may be assigned to the same dwell group. For components about the modem level, speed is determined. This value will be set to match the underlying HF network.

Although 3G ALE Automatic Link Establishment is more reliable and has significantly enhanced channel-time efficiency, the existence of a large installed base of 2G ALE radio systems and the wide availability of moderately priced often military surplus equipment, has made 2G the baseline standard for global interoperability.

Note that this exchange was to transfer a very short message, which fitted into a single IP packet.

Four additional unassignable addresses in each group xx are available for temporary use by stations calling into the network. If it does not get an ACK back within a reasonable time, it resends the data packet. It can be seen that this is very efficient, with just two turnarounds needed where the message can be transmitted within The data link protocol is closely connected with the burst waveforms defined in the standard, and cannot be run with other waveforms.

This slow speed is usually perceived as the primary difficulty with using HF. ACP is a good example of a rate based protocol. The HF bandwidth available may change according to conditions.
