Abstract
"Navy is expanding its shipboard information networks, information technology systems requiring wireless technologies are being developed to support increased shipboard information gathering for logistical, personnel, and maintenance-related functions aself forming networks that can expand and contract on demand, extend into damaged areas with unknown infrastructure, with no/short notice to support roving patrols, and between ad hoc elements of the platform as needed. A self-organizing andself-configuring network protocol, without the need for any existing network infrastructure or administration such as Dynamic Source Routing for Mobile Ad Hoc is emerging that will enable multiple mobile nodes to communicate using peer-to-peer andmulti-hop capabilities. This type of capability needs to be exploited to enable shipboard facility e.g. manufacturing plant and platform e.g. shipboard networks to operate with virtually no configuration support or other technical input required. Thiswill enable net centric capability to migrate wherever required and whenever needed. Enable wireless devices to join and access internet via wireless ad-hoc networking without concerning their network addresses and routing protocols hence to improvemobility and greatly simplify roaming between wireless devices anf networks."
