Research Institution
Defense Group Inc. (DGI) proposes a unique approach to Cross Layer Modeling of JTRS MANETs. Our approach integrates admission control with congestion management schema. We propose a schema of “Intelligently” dropping packets with three possibilities for improved JTRS network throughput: 1) Using a bypass of black traffic management state to red processing, 2) Perform proxy TCP processing in the Red gateway terminal, and 3) Perform proxy cache server into secondary storage on the proxy server. DGI’s deep experience and familiarity with the NED ENS network models will quickly and cost efficiently integrate new features into the data forwarding path. DGI demonstrates in-depth experience with integrating Red and Black networks across a Type 1 Crypto: DGI’s personnel have significant experience in JTRS, networking, modeling, crypto management including Multiple Independent Levels of Security, Multiple Levels of Independent Security and Cross Layer Switching Throughput Analysis. DGI’s PIs have successfully transitioned Navy SBIR and CEROS SBIRs into commercial practice. Mr. Roger Webb, a Senior Vice President of DGI will ensure successful transition to practical use for JTRS. DGI’s Co-PI has five patents awarded in network switching and security technologies. Our Subcontractor, DataSoft Corporation has extensive experience in OPNET and QualNet tools and modeling.
