Aeronautical Gateways: Supporting TCP/IP-Based Devices and Applications Over Modern Telemetry Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Telemetry applications in the mobile airborne networks pose unique challenges. In the current underlying network infrastructure these applications rely on point-to-point links based on IRIG 106 standard for Serial Streaming Telemetry (SST). Source and destination nodes should be in range of each other using the point-to-point links. In a scenario where a direct communication link is not possible between source and destination, a multi-hop network can be the only feasible solution for providing an end-to-end communication path. The need to support real-time telemetry applications in the limited radio spectrum, combined with economical benefits using a networked telemetry system is recognized by the DoD.
