Abstract
ABSTRACT: The need for improved routing to support ad-hoc satellite communications is apparent and protocol research has been performed to date which would greatly impact future DoD systems. The Internet Router in Space (IRIS)technology developed by SEAKR and Cisco has provided an advantageous mixture of space-qualified capability and commercial device performance and provides a strong basis upon which to improve network routing in space. The potential for an improved version of IRIS which incorporates improved network routing to dramatically increase on-orbit capability is attractive but much development remains to provide a space-qualified version. SEAKR and our teammates seek to retire enough risk to make this emerging capability a viable option to be incorporated in upcoming missions. BENEFIT: Improved mission performance, resilience, and reduce cost of DoD satellite communications systems.
