Abstract:

Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific has been developing mesh-networking communication-relaying technology to mitigate the line-of-sight problem associated with modern high-frequency wireless communications for more than 10 years. This report documents the lessons we have learned during the development of these systems and important principles critical to future communication-relay development efforts. The topics discussed are organized into five functional groups radio-frequency principles, wireless networking, mechanical design, electronic design, and software.
