- Dec 15, 2013So, is North Star and Combat Ciders still operational? And when it was, if the local GEPs could not be accessed somehow, were there reserve or back-up GEPs?

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...
