Personnel operating in tactical environments heavily rely on information sharing to perform their missions. Solutions deployed in these environments need to focus on reliability and performance, in addition to usability to work as unattended as possible due to the often chaotic nature of operations. In this paper we propose a solution for delay-tolerant data sharing, in particular file sharing, using well supported, common networking protocols. The solution is based on the concept of…

MobileCopy: Improving Data Availability and File Search Efficiency in Delay Tolerant Networks against Correlated Node Failure

This paper proposes a distributed file replication method (called MobileCopy) in DTNs, which aims to achieve low probability of totally losing a file at the expense of having a high number of impacted files in an individual large-scale correlated node failure.



An experimental evaluation of data distribution applications in tactical networks

This paper compares the performance of file sharing in mobile ad hoc networks using an implementation of the BitTorrent peer-to-peer protocol and DisService, a middleware for information dissemination specifically designed for Tactical Edge Networks to show that TEN-specific solutions such as DisService can outperform traditional peer- to-peer solutions like BitTorrent.

An experimental evaluation of delay-tolerant networking with serval

An in-depth experimental evaluation of Serval for various network setups and usage patterns, including simulated long term use, providing insights into the scenarios where Serval can be deployed with satisfactory quality and performance characteristics.

Design considerations in applying disruption tolerant networking to tactical edge networks

This article examines applying the DTN Bundle Protocol (RFC 5050) to ship-to-shore networks for traffic flowing over the aerial nodes to understand architecture and design considerations and limitations of military networks.

This study simulates a set of representative wireless ad hoc multicast protocols and evaluates them in various network scenarios, finding the relative strengths, weaknesses, and applicability of each multicast protocol to diverse situations.

Incentive Based Data Sharing in Delay Tolerant Mobile Networks

This work proposes a Multi-Receiver Incentive-Based Dissemination (MuRIS) scheme that allows nodes to cooperatively deliver information of interest to one another via chosen paths utilizing few transmissions, and outperforms existing methods in terms of delivery ratio and transmission efficiency.

Cyber-foraging for improving survivability of mobile systems

An architecture and experimental results are presented that demonstrate that cyber-foraging using tactical cloudlets increases the survivability of mobile systems, defined as the capability of a system to be able to continue functioning in spite of adversity.

TCP vs UDP performance evaluation for CBR traffic on Wireless Multihop Networks

This paper discusses QoS and power management at the transport layer of the protocol stack and TCP and UDP are studied as different transport layer alternatives and their performance is evaluated with respect to QSOS and power behavior under multimedia-like streaming conditions.

Experimental Study of Broadcatching in BitTorrent

The effectiveness of Broadcatching is demonstrated: it reduces the average completion time and downloading failure ratio and improves the overall fairness of the system: the subscribers are encouraged to share more while downloading faster, which results in the increased share ratio.

Efficient File Search in Delay Tolerant Networks with Social Content and Contact Awareness

This paper proposes Cont2, a social-aware file search method that exploits both node contents and contact patterns and can effectively improve the search efficiency compared to current methods.
