  1. Joint Transport and Routing Optimization for Adaptive Satellite Networks

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF11BT12

    ABSTRACT: Due to increasing communications demand for tactical mission operations force the DoD to initiative to migrate the existing circuit-switched, bent-pipe satellite communication systems to the onboard packet switched satellite systems using Internet Protocols. The new approach offers significant flexibility and performance gain, but there are still tough challenges, e.g., high bit error r ...
