Abstract
THE PROPOSED INVESTIGATION OF ADAPTIVE PROTOCOLS FOR SPREAD-SPECTRUM PACKET RADIO NETWORKS HAS FOUR PRIMARY TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES. FIRST, IT WILL PROVIDE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SIGNALING TECHNIQUES, ARCHITECTURES, AND ADAPTIVE PROTOCOLS FOR SURVIVABLE PACKET RADIO NETWORKS. SECOND, A NEW ADAPTIVE DISTRIBUTED ROUTING ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR USE IN SPREADSPECTRUM PACKET RADIO NETWORKS. THIRD, ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION WILL PROVIDE A QUANTITATIVE DEMONSTRATION OF THE PERFORMANCE OF THE NEW ROUTING TECHNIQUE WHEN USED WITH ADAPTIVE PROTOCOLS FOR TRANSMISSION AND FORWARDING IN A FREQUENCY-HOP PACKET RADIO NETWORK THAT IS SUBJECTED TO HOSTILE INTERFERENCE. FOURTH, WE WILL IMPROVE EXISTING SIMULATION CAPABILITIES FOR FREQUENCY-HOP PACKET RADIO NETWORKS.
