Abstract
"To support today's warfighters critical decision making process at all echelons, battle command systems must deliver mission critical information to the right person at the right place and at the right time. Quality information must flow seamlessly acrossboth wired and wireless networks under different network conditions. It is a challenge to seamlessly integrate various mobile wireless devices into a variety of information systems so as to more effectively aggregate and distribute real-time information toempower today's soldiers with a new warfighting capability. The presentation of the mission critical information must also be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the individual soldier. The narrow bandwidth characteristics of the wireless networkand the limited capabilities of the wireless devices coupled with the fact that each user has different requirements demand the most intelligent delivery and presentation of time critical information for enhanced battlefield awareness. Building uponArchitecture Technology Corporation's Active Network Architecture and Agent-Based Technology, this SBIR research proposes an innovative technology which will enable an intelligent and timely delivery of quality information (e.g. voice, data and video) to awide variety of mobile wireless devices used by today's warfighters, under varying network conditions. Based on the existing information technology standards and infrastructure, the pro
