Abstract:

Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform which inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. This necessitates a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. Typically, gateways only support a pair of protocols or waveforms and the translation between the two are hardcoded; this prohibits a gateway designed for use across one pair of networks to be used in another pair. Hence, a gateway that is not hardcoded for translation and can support a multitude of protocols and waveforms would save a considerable amount of money for the military as the gateway can be reused for operation across a wide spectrum of networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, Maxentric and The Cooper Union have partnered to propose an extensible software framework that can generate a communications gateway to translate information across different networks. The technology is codenamed the Cognitive Communications Gateway Engine (CCGE). Rockwell Collins, a prime military contractor, is also a member of the team.
