Reliable Data Aggregation and Dissemination Framework in Tactical Network Architecture

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Tactical communication systems are typically operated in disruptive networking environments. Such intermittent networking conditions present technical challenges in reliably delivering meaningful information to the appropriate destinations. This paper proposes a reliable data aggregation and dissemination framework in the context of tactical networks. The framework takes a hybrid approach of combining disruption tolerant networking advantages and an adaptive sensor data aggregation method to ensure reliable data delivery. An experimental prototype system architecture was developed and implemented to demonstrate the capabilities of the proposed data aggregation and dissemination framework.
