  author={Christos V. Samaras and Vassilis Tsaoussidis and Nestor Peccia},
We propose Delay-Tolerant Transport Protocol (DTTP) to address reliable data transfer in stressed network environments, such as space communications. Since existing TCP mechanisms do not work well (or at all) for such networks, new transport schemes are required. Intermittent connectivity in space environments calls for new transport approaches that smoothly adapt to the special networking conditions. DTTP is primarily a transport layer protocol and satisfies the inherent architecture… CONTINUE READING
