"Refine the characteristics of, and integrate a softwareimplementation of, an optimal protocol suite for reliable IP WANtransport over GEO satellites. The prototype Application TrafficController (ATC), integrating a caching controller, compressioncontroller, and prioritization and queuing controller, with anautomatic transport selector and enhanced transport protocols,will enable reliable multicast extension of IP WANs, over GEOSATCOM, despite long latency, low bandwidth, high error rate,channel variation, and severe operational constraints.Particularly, this integrated system will address EMCONoperations and extremely intermittent connectivity.BENEFITS: The communications environment of a submarine, with its EMCON constraints, crowded bandwidth, small antenna, mobility and infrequent brief connectivity, is worse than the worst case scenario currently envisaged by commercial developers. With theATC, the submarine force will gain a significant increase in efficiency and effectiveness of its satellite communications. The ability to handle EMCON and severely intermittent connectivity is a benefit that transfers to other naval assets, especiallythose involved in covert operations. Similar benefits will transfer to the deployed military and logistical assets of other military branches, as well as the non-military departments of the government, such as DoE and Customs. Commercially, wirelessnetwork operators are beginning to address th
