The SAT system was designed and developed by Cavalier Communications, Inc. to provide both a high performance and a low-cost, state-of-the-art Automatic Digital Network (AUTODIN) terminal. The SAT system provides a replacement system for the entire spectrum of aging terminal equipments ranging from the low-volume teletype and Model 40 terminals through the higher volume DCT-9000 and SRTs for either the General Service (GENSER) or Defense Special Security Communications System (DSSCS) communities.

Designed to operate on the industry-standard PC-compatible hardware suite using the DOS operating system, the SAT system enables the Government to take full advantage of today's competitively priced, industry-standard components while providing an automated AUTODIN terminal system. Many automated functions have been incorporated into the SAT system design and serve to both reduce the message writer-to-reader processing time and minimize the training time required for a SAT system operator. Examples of the automated functions provided include the following:

  • Forms entry processes to simplify online message entry
  • Comprehensive field and message validation accompanied by easy-to-understand operator prompts
  • Fully automatic DD173-to-JANAP 128/DOI-103 message conversion
  • Internal processing of messages based upon message priority
  • Automatic FLASH or EMERGENCY message override
  • A message AUDIT log
  • Archival copies of all messages transmitted and received
