A Cross-Layered Protocol Architecture for Highly-Dynamic Multihop Airborne Telemetry NetworksPerrins, Erik; Sterbenz, James P. G.; Jabbar, Abdul; University of Kansas (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2008-10)Highly-dynamic mobile wireless communication presents unique challenges to the network at all layers, and requires the design of new protocols and mechanisms. We discuss a cross-layer aware internetwork architecture and the various mechanisms to enable reliable communication in high-velocity multihop scenarios. We introduce AeroNP, an IP-compatible network protocol that is designed for telemetry applications in an aeronautical environment. A new routing algorithm is presented that leverages location information combined with snooping to forward packets in the absence of stable end-to-end routes along, with an implicit congestion control mechanism.
End-to-End Disruption-Tolerant Transport Protocol Issues and Design for Airborne Telemetry NetworksPerrins, Erik; Sterbenz, James P. G.; Rohrer, Justin P.; University of Kansas (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2008-10)Networks of airborne nodes provide unique challenges to end-to-end communication, in particular due to the highly dynamic topology and time-varying connectivity of high velocity nodes, and unreliability of the wireless communication channel. This paper explores the issues and presents a design for a domain-specific transport protocol targeted to multihop network that interconnects high-velocity airborne nodes with the telemetry application of returning sensor data with high reliability.
