Abstract:

The objective of this effort was to study new algorithms for robust communication network protocols and to develop techniques for analysis and evaluation of these protocol algorithms. These techniques are necessary to provide an objective basis on which to judge the effectiveness of these new algorithms for future C3I Air Force networks. A primary contribution of this work was to assist in the transfer of technology from on-going contract research efforts to the Rome Laboratory Network Design Facility. This report describes the testbed environment used during this study, presents an example of a typical protocol algorithm study, and illustrates the analysis and evaluation methodology with this example protocol. Sample experimental results that were used to identify certain problems with this protocol are also included. Protocols, Simulation, Robust, Communication networks.
