I'm sure it is. Most RF data link transceivers I've worked on for the
Navy are intermittent-use (ICAS == Intermittent Commercial/Amateur
Service) vice 100% duty cycle (CCS == Constant Commercial Service). God,
I haven't heard those terms in a while! The key difference is that
most of these are half-duplex systems that are polling networks or time
slot assignment services. Whether it is an obscure navy data link or an
airborne IP network access point, it takes an incredibily large load of
data to acheive 100% usage.
