The report presents a summary of a study conducted for the Transportation Systems Center of promising access control techniques which are applicable to an aeronautical satellite system. Several frequency division multiple access (FDMA) and time division multiple access (TDMA) configurations are analyzed and compared which are capable of providing voice, data and independent surveillance services. One of the FDMA concepts and a burst TDMA system are rated highest and are presented in greatest detail. Procedures are outlined for different types of entry, beam switching and handling various types of interconnections. Included are preliminary designs of the avionics instrumentation. (Author)
