Real-time local area networks are needed in a large number of automated applications where promptness, robustness and flexibility requirements are stringent.

Examples of such application areas are flexible manufacturing systems and airborne/shipborne/spaceborne systems.

In this report, two deterministic multiple access protocols intended for local area networks which use passive broadcast busses are presented.
