Toward Consolidated Tactical Network Architecture: A Modeling and Simulation Study

Free registration required

Executive Summary

A consolidated tactical network architecture provides an integrated shipboard local area network infrastructure for disparate afloat platforms operating with multiple security level enclaves. In this modeling and simulation study, a simulated network test bed is developed to investigate the performance trade-offs in a consolidated tactical network architecture. A baseline network traffic profile is defined in this study. Failover and traffic growth test scenarios are presented to study the performance of tactical applications under these network conditions. The results show that network traffic is redirected properly during failover conditions. The results also show that performance of the applications are scaled according to the network traffic growth.
