The US military requires a reliable, high-speed, multimedia capable system to disseminate information that cannot be efficiently distributed over existing low data rate channels. The Global Broadcast Service (GBS) is being developed to meet this requirement. The cornerstones of the OBS simplex broadcast are the premises of smart push and user pull. An integral part of the user pull is the reach back channel. The reach back channel allows users to speciiy the information they need broadcast and tailor the information to meet their mission needs. Ultra high frequency (UHF) demand assigned multiple access (DAMA) satellite communications are the most widely available long haul communication systems available to members of the armed services and as such are a prime candidate to provide a reach back path for GES. In order to fully utilize UHF DAMA as a reach back channel for data communications a number of interface requirements must be met. The problems of using UHF DAMA are discussed and recommendations are made for the OBS Phase Two systems so they might support the use of UHF DAMA as a reach back channel. This thesis shows that UHF DAMA is a viable reach back channel, however there are factors which could improve the efficiency
