Automated Analysis of Datalink Transmissions (AADT)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The focus of this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) topic is to investigate the feasibility of developing an automated tool for collecting and analyzing data in a JTRS test environment. The tool would provide Automated Analysis of Data link Transmissions (AADT) where a single JTRS terminal may be part of one or more JTRS networks. In the JTRS environment, the possibility exists for a single terminal to be connected to multiple networks at any given time with simultaneous data transmissions occurring through the individual channels in a single terminal. A test capability needs to be developed to verify JTRS functionality and interoperability onboard the Cluster AMF platforms prior to flight-testing. This will require a full suite of test tools, from a host simulator to generate and send data messages, to data analysis tools to verify the data sent was the data actually received, to network visualization tools to verify network connectivity between nodes, to data logging and troubleshooting tools to help in isolating and diagnosing problems in the test environment. The added network applications and tools to be incorporated into the test lab to provide both the network functionality and the test capability to evaluate and verify the Cluster AMF platforms integrated with JTRS terminals include the JWNM Network Manager, AMF/MIDS JTRS Terminal, WNW Host Simulator, other test tools like ETDMS, and AADT.
