TADIXS supports the exchange of Over-the-
Horizon Targeting (OTH-T) information between
shore and fleet-based computer systems that support
Navy cruise missile operations. Surface ships and
submarines operate in a TADIXS receive-only mode.
OTH-T data from the fleet destined for shore or
other fleet users is sent by the afloat Tactical Data
Processors (TDPs) through the TADIXS ON-
143(V)6/USQ to the OTCIXS ON-143 (V)6/USQ
for transmission over the OTCIXS satellite. A
TADIXS surface ship installation is shown in figure
3-10. Each OTCIXS-equipped surface ship or
submarine can enter both out-going teletype and
TDP traffic simultaneously.
Rf Transmission Link Control
The TADIXS satellite link network operates in a
half-duplex manner at a data rate of 2400 bps in a
permanently assigned time slot of a uhf DAMA
channel. Control of message traffic transmission is
