Abstract : This top-level system description establish the performance and design requirements for a Commercial SATCOM Interconnectivity System consisting of large C-band satellite assets with CONUS coverage. The purpose of the system is to augment the Public Switched Network in a post-nuclear attack environment. The essential mission of the CSI network is to provide T1 (24 digitally encoded voice channels) connectivity between specific PSN switches in a post-attack environment to provide for long-haul reconstitution of the PSN Toll Network. This system description is intended to provide the top-level technical document describing the CSI system at full operational capability (FOC). The system description specifies the mission, requirements, concept of operation, overall system performance, and a description of the various elements of the CSI network. It does not address the implementation of the various stages of CSI leading to FOC, nor any CSI implementation that may come about after FOC.
