Abstract
"The proposed program is for the design of a comprehensive optical networking architecture, network topology, software and holographic hardware modules that can be implemented to interconnect and integrate the diverse communications networks serving theU.S. Army's Tactical operations and designated supporting DOD organizations and to develop high capacity Dense Wave Division Multiplexing system that will be the basic component of the design. We propose to develop a multi-gigabit networking architecturethat will be based on optical technology utilizing holographic super dense wave division multiplexing that can be applied to fiber based cable systems as well as over-the-air optical links. We will model a high optical channel DWDM system that utilizesthree cascaded stages, populated with 30 channels. Capabilities based on optical component research of holographic beam combining technologies. The design will focus on the integration of diverse communications systems that have been designed forapplications that are specific to the tactical missions of the Army, as well as commercial or modified commercial systems that have been built to Army specifications. The system will also enable the Army to smoothly move from circuit based switchednetworks to packet based voice and data networks. The proposed high bandwidth optical network provides the ability to communicate between diverse systems at data rates not now available from commercial
