Abstract
The goal of NetPARAMS is to design, develop, test, and evaluate a network management tool for the US Navy that allows for dynamic visibility and control over the routers, links, and flows to automate actions to meet the commander’s intent of ship-to-shore and ship-to-ship communications. The tool will provide control over routers afloat and ashore to help manage and automate tasks, react to events, and schedule tasks, and become more autonomic over time. Currently the Navy has multiple communication paths from shore-to-ship and ship-to-ship but setup and management is not sufficiently dynamic. Multiple enclaves and paths to and from shore and ship use several RF paths with different characteristics. In this complex environment of dynamic changes, typically configurations are set and not changed. The Navy requires more dynamic changes to QoS, OSPF routing, PBR, ACL and other configurations to efficiently use the network resources to provide situational awareness and effective mission execution. This network management tool will be adaptable to ADNS Increment III and IV where there is more connectivity into more platforms, aircraft, and UAVs. The tool will align with ADNS requirements for IPv6 compatibility and with ADNS WAN connections into DoD GIG networks via the black core.
