AbstractTo supplement its communication capabilities, the US Army has developed a family of small, mobile, relatively low cost, Satellite Communications Terminals. Designated as AN/TSC-85 and AN/TSC-93, the Ground Terminals provide Satellite Communication links using the SHF Band. The terminals have a similar design resulting in a high degree of commonality allowing for lower logistics and operational costs. A special signal processing equipment permits nodal (multi-point) and non-nodal (point-to-point) communications. Both terminals are designed to operate from a standard, field power generators as well as from a variety of other power sources. The terminals can establish communications within thirty minutes of arrival on site.
