Abstract : In this report, we present the results of our modeling and simulation of SRW, which we use to explain the root causes of the problems that we have seen surface in operational test. Our analysis merges modeling and simulation of waveform behavior with an analysis of the physical constraints of the operating environment. We used our observations from the Network Integration Exercises (NIEs) to construct representative scenarios for simulation and to configure the SRW nodes according to the Armys implementation. We found that many of the difficulties encountered in testing the network and in achieving desired performance can be traced to discrepancies between the Armys use of SRW and the original concept with which the waveform was designed.
