Abstract"US warfighting strategy envisions the use of lighter, rapidly deployable, highly versatile forces that disperse widely into hostile territory. To ensure high mobility and flexibility of the forces, intelligence and tactical data must be exploited toprovide customized, mission specific information to the force. The widespread availability of low-cost PDA's (Personal Digital Assistant's) equipped with wireless WAN/LAN and GPS cards facilitates customized communication and intelligence disseminationamong on-the-field commanders and soldiers. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) proposes to design a novel architecture called Integrated Network Architecture for Information dissemination to Mobile subscribers (INAIM) that will provide communicationservices for mobile warfighters. INAIM services will address the problems associated with low bandwidth wireless networks and small screen mobile clients by including mechanisms for bandwidth management and dynamic content adaptation. To preserveinformation confidentiality and prevent Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, INAIM will provide services for secure transmissions and stealth communication. Seamless wireless communication is achieved by INAIM services utilizing link layer mechanisms andTCP/HTTP protocol optimizations. In short, INAIM services will lead to the design of a system that provides secure and seamless wireless network services for the army. The end product resulting from this
