Abstract:

Improved dissemination of software, updates, messages, and data in tactical networks require new and adaptive systems to improve war fighter's decision making abilities, performance and systems readiness. Degradation of services across platforms needs to be avoided while reducing update times for C4I applications, techniques and technologies in tactical networks including remote nodes with limited and intermittent communications. The Agent based Viral Object Caching and Dissemination Overlay (AVOCADO) system provides a novel dissemination system for existing networks (such as the GCCS-M in Tactical networks) based on an overlay data caching system using agents, data objects, and automation scripts. Existing update management systems send files from a base node to each other node, causing countless redundant data paths. AVOCADO will stop redundant data transfer and wasted bandwidth while guaranteeing delivery of data, software and updates to all needed nodes.
