Network aware applications provide opportunities for adaptive resource allocations for both network resources and distributed hosting of critical applications. This paper proposes an Automatic Dynamic Resource Management (AutoDRM) architecture for efficiently managing shared resources in tactical network environments without human operator intervention. The AutoDRM architecture was developed to resolve the resource contention issues and to improve the quality of service in tactical network environments. The information herein describes key components of the AutoDRM architecture.
