Abstract
The Department of Defense Joint Vision 2020 aims to create a force that is dominant across the full spectrum of military operations through information superiority. Achieving these objectives implies the ability to dynamically share and store data among potentially thousands of participants at the tactical edge, including users of Handheld, Manpack, and Small Form Fit (HMS) radios. However, this potentially exposes these platforms to capture, compromise, and cryptanalytic attacks. Concentris Systems proposes to leverage recent advances in peer-to-peer storage to provide a distributed data storage service for mobile ad hoc networks in which confidential information stored on individual nodes is not vulnerable to concerted cryptanalysis. The proposed system provides a generalized approach to discovery, replication, reliability, and availability for data in the tactical ad hoc network, and offers a roadmap for data persistence when connected to back-end enterprise networks. The solution will provide interoperability with key standards required by the DoD Network-Centric Operations objectives to ultimately produce a cost-effective, dual-use, commercially-viable product. The design and implementation of such a framework would greatly accelerate the realization of the DoD"s Joint Vision 2020 objectives for highly mobile missions in non-traditional areas of operation.
