Abstract
To address the U.S. Marine Corps MAGTF-C2 need for distributed mass data storage technologies on wireless networks, POC proposes to develop a new SCAlable Tactical TERrestrial BRoadband Adaptive Intelligent Storage Network (SCATTERBRAIN) technology. The proposed SCATTERBRAIN technology is based on an innovative combination of file partitioning, dual-layered error correction, linked list data structures, quasi-random partition distribution, and locally keyed encryption. SCATTERBRAIN essentially aggregates space in network-connected drives to form a massive virtual hard drive. The innovation in file system architecture offers a petabyte-scale, highly scalable storage solution that has no centralized elements and in turn no central points of failure. The novel error-correction approach eliminates the need to duplicate files across the network for redundancy purposes and subsequently minimizes both risk and wasted space. In Phase I, POC will define a suitable security architecture tailored to the MAGTF-C2 application space. We will identify all relevant certifications and compliance requirements, implement, and demonstrate a proof-of-concept SCATTERBRAIN prototype. In Phase II, we will enhance the feature set of this prototype and optimize and debug the Phase I software codes.
