Abstract:

To enable Internet Protocol applications in the submarine environment, Critical Technologies Inc. CTI has defined requirements for an integrated system of enhanced Data Link, Network and Transport protocols in OSI Layers 2-4 and an innovative Application Traffic Controller ATC, in OSI Layers 5-7. It integrates caching, compression, prioritization and queuing to optimize link utilization. The Compression Controller segment will provide users with compression benefits without requiring them to manually invoke compression utilities. It will automatically and transparently, based upon policy rules, for each data object determine whether the data requires compression, and if so, which algorithms and parameters are most appropriate for that data and then dispatch the object to the most appropriate available external compression utility. Navy system administrators will define the rules, based on Application Layer data object type, size, format, content, intended use, importance, sourcedestination, etc., per approved doctrine. In addition to automating compression, it will provide better control over the tradeoffs among delivered data quality, timeliness and wireless resource consumption. In the Phase I Option, CTI developed a Compression Controller pre-prototype and successfully tested it over UHF DAMA MILSATCOM.
