An attempt is being made to provide the reader with an appreciation for the complexity required to upgrade an existing Ultra High Frequency (UHF) 25 kHz tactical communications protocol. This thesis defines the satellite discipline and protocols for a second generation of the Officer in Tactical Command Information Exchange Subsystem (OTCIXS II). This thesis provides the detailed information necessary for the implementation of the OTCIXS II communications protocols. It can be used to define and develop the OTCIXS II satellite link software. The OTCIXS II network protocol will consist of distinct protocol layers: Physical, Data Link, and Network layers. The Transport layer which provides the actual computer to computer transfer of messages will not be covered in this thesis.
