Abstract:

In this effort we will overcome emissions security and placement issues with current generation wireless networks by implementing adaptive power management into MANET (Mobile Ad hoc Networks) tailored to the Navy's application. Cross-layer protocol optimization in Mantes based on 802.11 x offer the possibility of high bandwidth, low cost partitioned area coverage (i.e. non-line of sight operation through bulkhead partitioned areas), and enhanced digital and signal security. For this effort we will specifically identify and evaluate cross-layer optimization methods that incorporate a distributed model of the effect of power levels on EMCON considerations (as well as the more conventional models that relate power level to transmission error rates and station-to-station message collision for nodes within a shared communications zone). Thus, this network protocol will dynamically set transmitted power levels to meet both EMCOM requirements and network error rate/collision detect minimizing requirements simultaneously. Because most 802.11x transceivers support dynamic power and channel management, this will be possible using COTS network components and open, standards-driven methods.
