Testing protocols for mobile ad-hoc networks

In today’s battlefield, efficient data communication over radio networks is a matter of life and death. Knowing the exact position of friendly forces in the area, getting up-to-date information about enemy activity, and being able to communicate plans efficiently are essential capabilities for a modern army. Much of the communication takes place on radio networks with no predefined structure where bandwidth is extremely limited and packet loss is a fact of life. During the last many years, we have been developing and fine-tuning our algorithms for transmitting data over these networks.

In this presentation we will tell about the challenges in developing the protocols, and how testing and simulation have been central elements in the development of the protocols.
