Abstract
Rapid and accurate configuration and reconfiguration of the network devices provide the foundation for a robust network needed to facilitate command and ensure user access anywhere and anytime in support of mission-critical tactical operations. In this SBIR effort, the Architecture Technology Corporation (ATCorp) team proposes an innovative Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for Tactical Networks (DHCP-T) technology to address the need identified by the Army for automated network-parameter assignment to network devices in the tactical environments. The DHCP-T approach will overcome two major limitations of the current approaches: 1) need for time-consuming manual configuration of the network devices in each Mission Command system; 2) existing DHCP's inability to assign network parameters based on the mission needs. The technology will be developed to operate within the existing COTS network infrastructure, providing a cost-effective solution to rapid and accurate initialization and configuration of the network devices in the tactical environments.
