Transport Control Protocol TCP provides reliable data transfer for a variety of applications that can be found throughout current deployed environments. Tactical edge environments with constrained bandwidth and throughput require all that is available of network capacities, specifically those of deployed Remotely Piloted Aircraft RPA. These RPAs are required to collect and disseminate large amounts of Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance ISR data to command and control centers throughout a given theatre of operations. RPAs can provide an opportunity to use the repeatable nature of flight operations to record and predict the performance of TCP. This paper presents the optimization opportunity of TCP.
