Abstract

The E-2D and other airborne, network-enabled platforms represent a significant capability in terms of data fusion, command & control, and cooperative engagement. This effort seeks to develop an intelligent network routing solution with minimized size, weight, and power (SWaP) that can handle external network traffic in a multi-link wireless environment.5-D Systems will develop a network appliance that adapts and combines existing networking protocols to produce a radio-aware data routing and load-balancing strategy. 5-D?s unique approach minimizes the amount of overhead imposed on the radio network relative to other mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) routing protocols. 5-D?s solution software will reside on a compact, ruggedized networking switch utilizing a low-power COTS processor to execute the routing and network management functions. 5-D Systems will leverage its recent expertise in developing the Broadband-Over-Aircraft technology along with its years of developing innovative software to design, test, and evaluate our network appliance.
