Many Service Oriented Architecture SOA approaches in use today presume the availability of reliable, consistently available networks that provide limitless bandwidth and little or no latency. Since this is often not the case in the Department of Defense DoD or other Government tactical environments, the current methods of development may not provide reliable capability to users within this environment. In this paper, we propose a method for capturing design patterns for the tactical edge using the common vocabulary of a characterization framework described in Volume 1 of this set. We also provide a set of design patterns that minimize technical constraints associated with the disadvantaged tactical edge user, and derive the infrastructure requirements needed to implement a selected design pattern. This implementation serves as a reference, geared toward demonstrating the use of the characterization framework and validating the design patterns.
