The Admiralty Surface Weapons Establishment (ASWE) have developed a Local Area Network System. This thesis describes the development of a replacement for this LAN system, based around 16 bit microprocessor hosts, as opposed to the minicomputers currently used. This change gave a substantial reduction in size, and allowed the new system to be installed on a ship and tested under operational conditions. Analysis of the data collected during the tests gave performance information on the ASWE system. The performance of this LAN is compared to that of other leading types of LAN. The design of a portable network controller/ monitor unit is presented, which may be manufactured as a standard controller for the ASWE Serial Highway.
