ARMED FORCES COMMUNICATIONS AND ELECTRONICS ASSOCIATION'S 1992 INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION AND EXPOSITION

 ARMED FORCES COMMUNICATIONS AND ELECTRONICS ASSOCIATION'S
 1992 INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION AND EXPOSITION
 McDonnell Douglas Electronic Systems Co. invites members of the news media to visit its display at the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association's 1992 International Convention and Exposition (AFCEA) June 23-25, at the Washington Convention Center. The D.C. Convention Center is located at 900 9th Street, NW. Please stop by booth No. 1926 for a first-hand look at some of the most advanced electronic technology for the modern battlefield.
 McDonnell Douglas Electronic System has just finished field testing a revolutionary friend-or-foe identification system. The Battlefield Automatic Secure Identification System will be on display at AFCEA. BASIS provides a long-term solution to the battlefield fratricide problem. Friendly tanks, vehicles and aircraft carry a transmitter that sends signals well below the RF noise floor and, therefore, are undetectable to any receiver not employing the proper coding sequence. The signal is virtually unjammable. Receivers can be mounted on any weapons system and permit the identification of friendly vehicles up to 12 kilometers away.
 The company's sensor integration and data fusion expertise will be demonstrated through its Fusion Display System, an advanced tactical alert system. FDS integrates multiple on-board and off-board sensors into a concise real-time situation awareness display with a GPS compass. FDS automatically monitors tactical situations and provides alerts to threats or hazards.
 McDonnell Douglas will also exhibit products demonstrating its expertise in artificial intelligence. This experience is being applied in a variety of products. The company's Military Intelligence Processing System helps analysts process intelligence data for military commanders. The Text Understanding System component of MIPS reads and interprets free text that is then correlated and fused and offers the user an assessment of the situation. The system also learns and recognizes battlefield scenarios and predicts enemy movement. Another product, the Real- time Adaptive Planning System, allocates and schedules resources required to support mission planning and transport scheduling.
 Also on display at AFCEA will be McDonnell Douglas' laser crosslink communications subsystems. Using lasers to transmit information at the speed of light, the crosslink subsystems allow satellite-to-satellite communication -- eliminating dependence on vulnerable ground stations.
 McDonnell Douglas Electronic Systems will display and demonstrate a variety of other military communication systems.
 Its Automated Communications Processor (ACP) offers a turn- key solution to secure message processing requirements. ACP is unique in that it is a central communications processor with the ability to simultaneously handle two-way transmissions among as many as 14 communication links. ACP is designed to provide a high level of message protection and security and is DIA accredited and DCA qualified.
 Turn-key style installation is also a key feature of the McDonnell Douglas-developed SUCCESS radio. SUCCESS radio is a "smart" communications system -- capable of self-testing and frequency management. It is a powerful UHF radio that allows data to be transmitted and received simultaneously over its one transmit and three receive channels. SUCCESS radio is designed to communicate with selected airborne, earth and satellite systems and is easy to use because it is computer-controlled. SUCCESS radio offers an additional advantage over competing systems because it has a built-in Tactical Receive Equipment (TRE) processor for processing TADXIS B messages.
 Also, McDonnell Douglas Electronic Systems will display an encryption-free fiber-optic device for transmitting classified data at high speeds (100 mbps). The McDonnell Douglas Intrusion Detection Optical Communications System (MIDOCS) is a family of fiber-optic communications products based on a patented approach that combines recent advances in fiber-optic sensors and telecommunications technology. MIDOCS uses standard single-mode fiber-optic cables and directly interfaces with FDDI applications.
 The company also will demonstrate its advanced intelligence message
handling system for the Department of Defense. The


Automated Message Handling System (AMHS) is currently in its final integration and testing phase. AMHS will allow intelligence analysts to receive and process information in near real-time, utilizing state-of-the-art hardware and software. "Smart" message processing software will provide messages to each user in order of individual priority.
 For more information on these and other McDonnell Douglas Electronic Systems products, please stop by the company's booth, or contact Karolyn Wolf at 703-883-3825.
