COMMON USER DIGITAL INFORMATION
EXCHANGE SYSTEM (CUDIXS) AND
NAVAL MODULAR AUTOMATED
COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM (NAVMACS)
The CUDIXS/NAVMACS combine to form a
communications network that is used to transmit
general service (GENSER) message traffic between
ships and shore installations. NAVMACS serves as an
automated shipboard terminal for interfacing with
CUDIXS (shore-based) (figure 2-13) and the Fleet
OTHER SPECIALIZED SUBSYSTEMS
The FLTSATCOM system represents a composite
of information exchange subsystems that use the
satellites as a relay for communications. The following
subsystems satisfy the unique communication
requirements for each of the different naval
Submarine Satellite Information Exchange
The SSIXS provides a communications system to
exchange message traffic between SSBN and SSN
submarines and shore stations.
Antisubmarine Warfare Information
Exchange Subsystem (ASWIXS)
ASWIXS is designed as a communications link for
antisubmarine warfare (ASW) operations between
shore stations and aircraft.
Tactical Data Information Exchange
TADIXS is a direct communications link between
command centers ashore and afloat. TADIXS provides
one-way transmission of data link communications.
