An Interoperable, Resource Efficient, High Throughput Satellite Data Link Protocol
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The objective of this proposal is to design an interoperable, resource efficient, high throughput satellite data link protocol, SCPS-DL, that interoperates with military and commercial standard (TCP/IP) networking and link layer protocols. Analyses and simulation will also be performed to compare satellite resource use when the newly defined data link control protocol is used with the SCPS upper layer protocols versus the use of standard data link and networking protocols. Because one of the primary design goals of a data link control protocol for satellite systems is interoperability with existing protocols and standards, an SCPS-DL protocol is the most interoperable and standards based design starting point. The use of the CCSDS specifications provide a large step towards a low cost, low risk, and short implementation schedule for the satellite data link control protocol. The resulting design specification will be proposed to the CCSDS, ISO, and IEEE standardization committees as a satellite and space link data link layer protocol.
