AbstractThe Distributed Services Framework for Mobile Ad-hoc Networks address the challenges of interconnecting a diverse set of operational wireless nodes and making available the services and data published by those nodes in a reliable and efficient manner. Additionally, it will provide interoperability with key standards required by the Department of Defense''s Net Centric Warfare objectives, leverage existing open standards and open source products, and ultimately result in a cost-effective, dual-use, commercial product. Current service discovery protocols are mainly targeted towards fixed wired infrastructure or relatively stable cellular wireless networks. Many of these protocols create significant traffic overhead, are not scalable in a wireless environment, rely on central infrastructure, or perform badly when connectivity becomes intermittent. The successful design of a Distributed Services Framework that overcomes these challenges will greatly accelerate the objectives proposed by the Joint Vision 2010 and Joint Vision 2020 initiatives.
