Abstract:

The Navy is seeking to transparently incorporate advanced communications techniques suitable to increase the efficiency of the current RF and Microwave communication system. Specifically, a modularized and extensible system is required for Long, Thin, Unreliable and Intermittent pipes such as narrow and medium band satellite and bandwidth constrained intermittent RF links. Internetworking protocols require proper augmentation and correction due to long feedback loops, large number of in-transit packets, transmission errors, asymmetric links and intermittent connectivity. A plug-n-play, non-supervised performance enhancement software solution is incorporated into legacy systems to overcome these problems. It is well noted in many research literature that a majority of problems in long delay wireless networks either stem from sensing or measurement, inefficiency or can be better overcome if accurate sensing were available. To address this problem, Broadata Communications, Inc. (BCI), leveraging its networking protocol expertise, proposes to develop a Generic Network Measurement Software Architecture (MSA). The MSA is an innovative modularized architecture that transparently achieves accurate network monitoring and measurement and facilitates the positive enhancement of network performance.
