Abstract:

The US Navy has identified a need for optimized coding and protocols for free-space optical links. Such links provide the high bandwidth required by future service oriented networks in maritime and expeditionary environments. However, atmospheric turbulence and attenuation can have a deleterious impact on the performance of IP based communications operating on these networks. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) will leverage its extensive experience in network technology to develop Enhancements for Lossy Optical Networks (EFLON). These enhancements will alleviate the performance problems caused by atmospheric phenomenon, such as turbulence. The objective of this effort is to establish the feasibility of EFLON in Phase I. The follow-on Phase II effort will then implement a prototype of EFLON that will be demonstrated in a realistic environment.
