Abstract:

The inter-domain routing protocol BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) was designed for statically configured land-based networks, which experience infrequent topology changes. As a result, BGP performs poorly in airborne network environment, where the topology of the networks is constantly changing because of domains mobility. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) has, as part of its Phase I effort, successfully established the feasibility of an innovative approach called Border Gateway Protocol with Mobility Extensions (BGP-MX) to enable inter-domain communication for mobile domains networks that are part of the Airborne Network (AN) environment. During the Phase II effort, ATC will realize a BGP-MX software product and demonstrate its operational effectiveness in meeting the AN needs for inter-domain routing. BENEFIT: BGP-MX will allow cutting-edge, high-mobility networking systems to become and stay connected to the global internet without disrupting the global network itself. Many military and commercial applications exist for BGP-MX. Any application that utilizes mobile networks as autonomous systems and wishes to integrate these systems into the existing internet would need BGP-MX. Such applications and industries include but are not limited to airlines, ships, forest fighters, search and rescue, disaster relief, and the military.
