Abstract:

This effort advances the state-of-the-art in networking for both datavoice communications in the HF 2- 30 MHZ band. This is contained in a PC portable simulation called the Improved HP Data Network Simulator INS. INS algorithms emphasize a decentralized, distributed architecture and interoperability for both military and civilian air-land-sea mobile users. Up to 100 users are contained in up to 10 nets that make up one network. The intended radii for the netsnetwork are 400 and 4000 miles respectively. Technical issues addressed are improved HF networking, LQA techniques, LPDLPE waveforms for OPSEC, and frequency hop FH frequency management. The INS provides the means for configuring a network to any users protocolsarchitectures with node, path and network results available over the 24 hour time period of the propagation model IONCAP. To receive the INS, you must complete a STATEMENT OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR RELEASE OF USAF OWNED DEVELOPED SOFTWARE. Contact the RL program manager to obtain this. A Phase II effort titled Adaptive Network Controller ANC will put the Phase I algorithms into use on real-time over-the-air HF networks to demonstrate the improvement in HF communications.
