AbstractThe Army has identified the need for open standards based multimedia terminals that integrate voice, video and data to implement multimedia applications for battlefield environments. H.323 is expected to be one of the predominant terminal standards forimplementing such applications over the Army's integrated services networks of the future. The major technical challenges that must be addressed to enable the deployment of battlefield multimedia applications over such networks are: 1) ability toefficiently integrate with existing multimedia terminals on circuit switched networks 2) development of end-to-end security mechanisms for multimedia streams, (from SBU through Top Secret levels) over integrated networks and 3) the development ofmechanisms for bandwidth-efficient transport of real-time multimedia (video, audio, data) streams with predefined QoS requirements over bandwidth-constrained IP backbone network. The Phase I SBIR effort successfully designed and established the feasibilityof building programmable distributed gateway architecture, called SAINCaP (Secure Architecture for Integrated Circuit and Packet Switching Applications), to address these requirements. SAINCaP is a highly adaptable architecture that is designed toaccommodate technology evolution. The Phase II effort will build a functioning prototype of SAINCaP. This prototype implementation of SAINCaP will then be transitioned into a commercial product during Phase III.
