Abstract
Given the following four facts: the steadily increasing computational power of mobile handheld devices the steadily increasing number of mobile handheld devices in the modern networked battlespace the steadily increasing need for and supply of sensor data and Situational Awareness (SA) information in the networked battlespace the continuing state of the wireless infrastructure available (lossy, asymmetric, degraded, intermittent links) to network the increasing data load to and from the increasing number of mobile wireless platforms then the need to process as much of the data as possible as far out"on the edge"as possible is a given. CTI proposes an architecture and set of cross-layer optimization algorithms where the mobile wireless platform invests a policy-based degree of its energy in: managing its internal data storage managing its connectivity via disruption delay routing managing the data stored amongst the networked nodes via an evolutionary algorithm managing the analysis of the data between LAN A software solution, based within transparent gateways, will be packaged in a hardware-agnostic component, allowing for deployment across mobile wireless platforms.
