  2. Objective • To create and implement technologies for flexible, high performance, rapidly self-configuring radio networks, and to demonstrate these innovative technologies

  3. Specific Objectives • Develop rapidly, self-organizing IP/ATM wireless networks • Develop modular and configurable radios with 5-10 km range • Deploy scalable prototypes for experiments and evaluation • Extend location-based network control algorithms

  4. Impact on DoD • Create new networking and communication technologies to support rapid deployment of US military forces or aid in civilian disaster relief operations • Provide high speed wireless communication to the smaller units of the military on the move (battalion TOC and below) • Bring interoperable technology into the military communication network at all levels

  5. Challenges • Rapid deployment of large, multi-hop wireless and mobile networks, and integration with other DoD infrastructure • How to exploit knowledge of location and radio capabilities for rapid initial configuration, mobility support, routing, and reconfiguration • Assuring quality of service in a mobile, wireless environment with rapidly changing channel conditions and topology
