After September 11, experts learned that tremendous amounts of available information within and beyond the Defense Department required adequate connections among its various providers and users.
If bandwidth is becoming an important bottleneck in battle, went the question, what is the U. Department of Defense DoD initiated a Transformational Communications Study to accelerate the delivery of advanced communications capabilities with state-of-the art technology.
It looked at many options, and assessed current plans. The study concluded that the US. It also suggested that there was a window of opportunity to provide an architectural framework for a compatible communications system across the Department of Defense and the intelligence community — one that could increase U.
Lots of transformation systems emerging today and the time to achieve interoperability is now. At present, all of the U. Colonel Patrick Rayermann, head of the U. While their programs are designed to be compatible with each other, priorities between these groups sometimes differ.
In addition, the separation of funding and lobbying means that technical elements designed to work together may not be funded synchronously. This is part of the task facing the newly-formed Transformational Communications Office. Communications satellites come in 3 flavors: These programs are all organized around the lifespan of the current Milstar II satellite constellation; the Pentagon is very confident that they will remain capable throughbut after that, their confidence diminishes.
TSAT SS Concept TSAT is intended to provide internet-like capability that extends high-bandwidth satellite capacity to deployed troops worldwide, and delivers an order of magnitude increase in available military bandwidth. Modulated laser links between satellites would be used to create a high data-rate backbone in space, making TSAT one of the key enablers for the American vision of Network Centric Warfare.
A radar image from a Global Hawk UAV currently 12 minutesor a multi-gigabyte radar image from space-based radar 88 minuteswould also take less than a second with the TSAT network.
Best of all, the recipient could be on the move with a relatively small receiver, anywhere in the world. The high-data rate access provides a data rate from 2. Once they are added in subsequent sets, only 20 to 50 or so of these links would be available per satellite, and they will most likely be dedicated to major intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance assets in space and in the air.
On the low data-rate end, TSAT users would still have about 8, simultaneous radio frequency RF data links available to them, which will provide connectivity to strategic assets and tactical users as well as the aerial intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance ISR platforms.
The high data rate platforms have drawn the most attention, but the ability to convert high data throughput into thousands of RF channels is likely to prove equally important. See below for full details. To try and avoid software development problems that have plagued other large space programs, the US Air Force has enlisted experts from the Software Engineering Institute.
The TMOS program also includes the development of a network operations center NOC and operations management center, as well as the related hardware. The Pentagon says that awarding TMOS early decreases TSAT program risk by providing an integrating construct for network architecture and design, and allows the awarded contractor to begin work on formal network interface definitions and specifications.
Earlier in the competition, Raytheon spokespeople had also noted that TMOS stations could be built before the satellites are launched inand used in conjunction with existing satellites as part of the Global Information Grid Bandwidth Extension project.
Which means the Air Force has just one shot to be successful. It recommended that TSAT be delayed until its critical technologies, such as laser optics, high-speed router and security algorithms, are more mature.
At the time, most of these technologies were rated at technology readiness level TRL 3 or 4 by the GAO, which translates as technologies in the study stage with some laboratory tests. The GAO also pointed to a lack of backup technologies for critical systems such as laser communications.
In response, the TSAT program took steps to address some of those gaps. One step was moving the launch date back from toin order to give technologies more time to develop.
Another step was to award risk reduction contracts to study alternatives, refine the expected development path, and beef up preliminary research in key areas. These alternative possibilities included options that may sacrifice certain features for more proven alternatives, and some of these decisions have already been made.
Laser satellite links, which were considered to be one of the highest-risk, highest-reward technologies, were dropped from the first 5 TSAT SS satellites.
A September GAO advisory noted improvements on the technology front, but integration remained a concern. Especially in a field exploding as fast as electronics and networking.Sample Evaluation Timeline Continue to conduct process evaluation in Florida of APYA/STREET Smart programs.

The TSAT Program is actually just one node in a broad spectrum of programs known as the Transformational Communications Architecture (TCA), version of which was approved by a Joint Requirements Oversight Council Memorandum (JROCM) on Oct 23/ - The timeline should be realistic and applicable to the evaluation of the wellness program.
More can be added to the timeline as the development of the wellness program progresses. A budget should also be created (typically by an internal staff person from the committee on the management level) to help the team determine possible program . Text Version. The USPTO Patent Application Initiatives Timeline displays various programs and initiatives that are available to applicants during each phase of the application process.
Each program is designed to advance the progress of a patent application and to provide applicant assistance. Program titles in the Timeline can be selected to access specific details on objectives and.
Student-centered priorities form the bedrock of the QM Model. In we created the QM Online Student Bill of Rights based on a survey conducted by Penny Ralston-Berg (Penn State World Campus).
They focus on online course features that students said mattered most to them. Protecting the population is a primary responsibility of Government, and fulfilling this responsibility depends on the skills and abilities of emergency personnel to respond in a timely and proficient manner when disaster strikes.
