Abstract

AFCO Project 25 Common Air Interface (CAI) specifications call for use of the Digital Slotted Multiple Access (DSMA) method for subscriber radio inbound data traffic. This DSMA method defines a protocol to be used for channel access that minimizes collisions on the inbound channel. To be effective in avoiding collisions, the DSMA method requires that a subscriber unit, with a data packet queued for transmission, check the status of the channel and only transmit if the inbound channel is IDLE.
