Abstract:

This report documents the results of the AFRL in-house effort titled Routing for Next Generation MILSATCOM. The report is divided into several sections corresponding to the efforts main thrusts. While this effort was in existence for several years, its objectives changed over time and the end result is several distinct efforts performed under the umbrella of this effort. When this effort began, its objective was to develop strategies for routing messages in the next generation MILSATCOM environment. The developed routing strategiesalgorithms were to be prototyped and tested in computer simulations to determine their performance. At managements direction, this program was then redefined to investigate the feasibility of Global Grid theatre extension objectives. Through analysis and simulation, this program was to investigate the applicability of SHF and EHF satellite resources to play the role of gateway in a high-speed global network. One other distinct effort that was performed was the result of a request from U.S. Space Command USSPACECOM to perform a preliminary validation and accreditation of their NATE C3 simulation model. A report was previously prepared for USSPACECOM but the results were not published in an AFRLIF Technical Report until now.
