The purpose of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasiblity of innovative extentions to the use of Mobile IPv6 to allow US Army legacy tactical devices to interoperate in the new IPv6 mobile networks being deployed. The Army is planning the migration of its core network to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) over the next several years as part of its Global Information Grid (GIG) expansion. The Army has many legacy tactical IPv4-based mobile devices, such as radios, data and navigation units, etc. that may never be replaced or updated for many years or may be cost-prohibitive to do so. These IPv4-based tactical devices are not interoperable with the IPv6-based GIG. Our company, Datatek Applications, is developing an experimental IPv4-IPv6 Translator that shows promise in solving this interoperability problem facing the Army and DoD. Mobility is of paramount importance to the DoD. We plan on continuing to develop our Translator for use in Army Net Centric Warfare Command and Control (C2) Systems to rapidly convert these IPv4 legacy devices to Mobile IPv6 nodes with all the benefits that IPv6 brings to the mobile warfighter.
