          NORTHSTAR was a late 80s/90s code name for the UHF Airborne
      Multiplex system... I beleive that name postdates the system by some
      years - the mux system went into service in 1962-3 and NORTHSTAR refers
      to a much more recent configuration that that original.   Possibly a
      mid 90s or later revision.

          That term was used for the at least the military circuits
      associated with this system.   I have always heard the term as CIDERS
      rather than CINDERS...
