Title: Mobility to 802.16j - Mobile Multi-hop Relay Base Stations
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W15P7T-08-C-F001
Award Amount: $69,987.00
 

Abstract:

Due to the remarkable benefits provided by 802.16 Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) networks, military interest in such technology has consistently grown. However, preplanned base station locations with tall towers and directionally-optimized antennas are not tactically useful. Therefore, in order for the military to leverage commercial wireless technologies, these technologies must be adapted for a tactical environment. In this project, we will address these challenges and develop the Multi-hop Base Station Mobility Management Scheme (MBSMMS) which will provide support for the mobility of base stations in a tactical environment. The proposed MBSMMS is an improvement/amendment of the current IEEE 802.16j standard that offers efficient mobility support for BSs and provides backward compliance to the commercial 802.16 technology. IST has assembled a distinguished team to address this proposal. In conjunction with our university research partner, we are proposing a novel and innovative approach to meeting the requirements called for in the solicitation. At the conclusion of Phase II, we will have a pre-production version of our product ready for immediate deployment in selected applications.
