Milstar aehf communications planning

Milstar/AEHF Communications Planning

  • Current (Milstar) And Future (Milstar/AEHF) Constellations Both Have Tools That Provide A Communications Planner The Capability To Plan Communications Services

    • Current Tool Is Milstar Communications Planning Tool – Integrated (MCPT-i)

      • Planning Process Results In A Hard Copy EHF Service Plan (ESP)

      • MCPT-i Facilitates The Planning Process But Is Not Required

    • Future Tool Is The AEHF Mission Planning Element (MPE)

      • Planning Process Results In Both A Hard Copy ESP (To Support Legacy Terminals) And An Electronic File (Image) For Loading Into NMT

      • Unlike MCPT-i, Use Of MPE Will Be Required To Generate Terminal Images

    • MPE – A Collection Of Computer Tools To Plan AEHF And Milstar Satellite Communications

Interim communication planning

Interim Communication Planning

  • Use current EHF FOT planning process for NMT

    • Today’s tools (MCPT-i) will support NMT SAR-SAA processes

    • Use the FOT terminal type in MCPT-i to plan NMT terminals

      • Similar performance characteristics

    • Only current Milstar planning information is needed

  • Site will obtain NMT terminal image from COMSECONDFLT CAS website

    • PMW 170 SMEs will work with COMSECONDFLT communication planner to convert communication plans to MPE format

    • Downloaded file to CD for loading into NMT

      • Automated image execution supported

At Operational Site, No Difference Between Final & Interim Process

Interim Communication PlanningStanding COMSECONDFLT ESP

  • Ship’s Force will use current standard fleet processes for obtaining EHF resources. Within the COMSECONDFLT OPAREA, if using the standing COMSECONDFLT EHF Service Plan is prescribed, sites should follow the COMSECONDFLT procedures to obtain authorization to use this ESP.

    • If using the standing COMSECONDFLT ESP, the initial Commplans provided by SMEs can be used (delivered during post-SOVT OJT)**

      • For current VACAPES beam, use Commplan entitled “C2F VACAPES”

        • 512K TIP net, MDR CMD Voice, 9.6 MDU, 128K Dual Simplex Net

        • Applies to WASP, COLE or NCTAMS LANT

      • For current JAXOPAREA beam, use Commplan entitled “C2F JAXOA”

        • 256K TIP net, MDR CMD Voice, 9.6 MDU, 128K Dual Simplex Net

        • Applies to any NMT units in JAXOPAREA

          **Note: These plans may need to be updated whenever the Standing ESP changes

Interim Communication PlanningNot using COMSECONDFLT ESP

  • Requests outside of the standing COMSECONDFLT ESP, sites will determine EHF requirements and submit appropriate Satellite Access Request (SAR) IAW ALSECONDFLT 023/09.

  • Upon receipt of the SAA and development of the associated ESP consistent with legacy ESP generation, PMW 170 SMEs will interface with COMSECONDFLT communication planners for file conversion. Updated image posted to CAS website

    • Site provides the SAA mission number for which the Commplan is desired and the SME will look up the SAA from SIPR websites.

  • NMT program will develop SAR and image file to support DT/IT/OT test activities

Summary

Summary

  • NMT requires electronic “images” for operations on EHF LDR and MDR

  • Schedule delays with AEHF satellites and MPE requires an interim comm planning process.

    • Fleet plans EHF resources as it does today

    • NMT SME’s convert ESP to electronic image file

    • Image file is downloaded from CAS website

  • No change in planning for Wideband services
