Networks often require a copy of a message to be delivered to every network node. The network-layer can provide this service, referred to as network-wide broadcast routing, or simply "broadcasting". Broadcasting has many applications, including its role as a building block in many routing protocols. In a MANET, simplistic broadcast schemes (such as(More)
Network simulator software tools are often used to model the behaviors and interactions of applications, protocols, packets, and data links in terrestrial communication networks. Other software tools that model the physics, orbital dynamics, and RF characteristics of space systems have matured to allow for rapid, detailed analysis of space communication(More)
Ad-hoc networks consisting entirely of simple mobile phones can be used to deploy village level telephony. We investigate a novel application for such networks – a peer-to peer community radio service. We envision a system, where any user in the network is equally empowered to generate and distribute audio content to the entire network, using his or her(More)
In this paper we describe an application of Temporospatial Software Defined Networking (TS-SDN) to UAV networks. Airborne platforms (airplanes, balloons, airships) can be used to carry wireless communication nodes to provide direct-to-user as well as backhaul connections. Such networks also include ground nodes typically equipped with highly directional(More)
Space communication infrastructure continues to support legacy space mission users and interfaces while simultaneously building advanced capabilities to support new mission users, who are demanding higher data-rates and more modern interfaces. As a result, the space communication infrastructure is growing more complex every day. This level of complexity(More)
