AbstractThe proposed effort will develop a Ultra Wideband Network Datalink. Properly designed Data Link layers of protocol stacks take into account both the channel characteristics provided by the physical layer (in this case an, Ultra Wideband transciever) andthe higher layers and applications above the Data Link layer. Likewise, the design of a Physical layer that reflects the requirements of an upper Data Link layer is a superior design methodology than simply designing them in isolation.The primary product for the Phase 1 effort is a combined design of both an ultra wideband Physical layer and Data Link layer. Formal design documentation will be developed and delivered. All designs specified in the performance of Phase I shall take intoaccount availability of components required to realize a prototype implementation in Phase II. Ultra Wideband is an emerging technology with great promise. The inherent benefits of ultrawide transceivers are well known, and by themselves provide many desirable characteristics for both military and commercial applications. A combined design processthat yields a Data Link layer that is optimized to the characteristics of the ultra wideband trascievers can bring the inherent beiefits of ultriwideband technology to wireless networking product.
