A Commander-in-Chief U.S. Pacific Fleet letter to the Chief of Naval Operations, dated September 12, 1989, contains a Command and Control Studies and Analysis Program (C2STAP) proposal for EHF line-of-sight communications. The purpose of this thesis is to address several of the issues raised by the C2STAP proposal by providing: an analysis of the inherent advantages and disadvantages of communications in the EHF spectrum, an analysis of the current and projected future state of EHF technology with respect to potential military applications, a link analysis of an EHF LPI communications link in a specific tactical scenario, and a recommendation to upgrade the Integrated Refractive Effects Prediction System (IREPS) in order to provide an EHF LPI link assessment capability. Although many other applications are referred to, the primary purpose of this thesis is to assess the feasibility, practicality, and tactical benefit of EHF communication systems.
