Abstract:

Network Analysis Corporations contract with the Advanced Research Projects Agency has the following objectives 1 to study the properties of packet-switched computer communication networks for local, regional and large scale data communications, 2 to develop performance measures and analyses for integrated command, control, and communication networks, 3 to determine the costthroughputreliability characteristics of large packet-switched networks for application to Defense Department computer communication requirements, and 4 to apply recent computer advances, such as interactive display devices and distributed computing to the analysis and design of large scale networks. This report summarizes principal technical accomplishments during the reporting period as well as the tasks in progress. The body of the report describes detailed results in the area of Packet Radio Network initialization, connectivity monitoring, and stability control are given. These issues are addressed at two levels 1 Procedures proposed for implementation in the Experimental Packet Radio Local Area Demonstration System and 2 Extensions and additions for application in second generation DOD systems. Keywords Data transmission systems Communication and radio systems Wave packets.
