In implementing the Maritime Satellite System (MARSAT), there will be the problem of developing the optimum access control concept. A number of access control techniques are considered and a comparative analysis conducted to select the "best" concept for a particular set of requirements and decision criteria. The communication traffic analysis used in this study is a composite taken from several requirements analyses conducted to date. The results of the Automated Marine International Study for the Coast Guard (Coast Guard Contract DOT-CG-00505A) was essentially the source document for the requirements postulated for 1980. The general characteristics of a number of candidate techniques are developed in the MARSAT application. The selection of a "best solution" to the MARSAT access control problem is based on comparative judgement of qualitative measures. These measures are particularly the user terminal impact in terms of the hardware and workload impact of the user. Additional considerations unique to each technique considered have been commented on and used in making the final judgement.
