Abstract:

Power efficiency issues are investigated across layers for use in tactical communications among battery-operated wireless sensor networks WSNs and wireless MANET nodes. Fundamental limits, practical guidelines, specific algorithms at the physical, data link, and application layers as well as performance analysis of tactical networks are developed when power optimization as opposed to, e.g., throughput or delay, pursued by existing approaches is the ultimate goal. Challenges addressed include the harsh interference environment, as well as stringent power and bandwidth constraints.
