Secured Position Location and Tracking (SPL&T) for Detection of Multiple Malicious Nodes Maintaining Two Friendly References in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Secured Position Location and Tracking (PL&T) scheme is developed for multiple malicious radios or nodes detection using integrated key based strict friendly scheme and position location and tracking by multi-sectored based multiple target's PL&T. The friendly and malicious nodes detection is based on the integrated key consisting of symmetric keys, geographic location and round trip response time. Two strictly friend references dynamically form the tracking zone over the detected multiple malicious nodes using the multi-sectored adaptive beam forming. This PL&T technique is robust, precise, scalable, and faster than using the single reference, two reference and three reference nodes based PL&T method in the battlefield oriented Mobile Ad hoc Networks.
