This paper discusses the current debate among NASA engineers on how to best achieve a networked model of interplanetary communications. While there are those who believe that existing Internet protocols can be extended deep into space, others believe that these Internet protocols need to be supplemented with new ones to network remote space. 

Aggregation of DTN bundles for channel asymmetric space communications

This paper presents an experimental investigation, using a PC-based testbed, of whether aggregation of multiple DTN bundles within a single Licklider transmission protocol (LTP) block has performance advantage over the default approach of “one bundle per block” for channelrate asymmetric cislunar communications.

Evaluation of Transport Layer Protocol for Satellite Communications

This research aims to find out the efficient protocol between TCP and SCPS-TP transport protocol through simulation topology method.

This paper proposes an architecture pattern of inner planet solar network, and mathematically model the total delay on them, and proposes a new communication protocol called IP2X and studies its performance.

Deployment, Management, & Operations of Internet Routers for Space-Based Communication

This thesis addresses certain technical and financial challenges associated with the deployment and operation of relay spacecraft using the Internet Protocol as the primary routing protocol, and investigates whether SNMP, TFTP, and SCP are capable of meeting the Tracking, Telemetry, and Command requirements set by a real-world geostationary relay service provider.

Discovery of delay-tolerant networking endpoint elements

This thesis studies discovery problems in heterogeneous networks where it is necessary to decouple information from its producer in order to exchange it between different consumers or producers with the scalability of loosely coupled systems.

A bundle of problems

It is shown that the existing DTN bundling architecture has a number of open real-world deployment issues that can be addressed, and areas where the current Bundle approach is not well-suited to many of the operational concepts that it was intended to support.

Performance of DTN protocols in space communications

An experimental performance evaluation of DTN CLA protocols for reliable data transport over a space communication infrastructure involving asymmetric channel rates, with particular attention to the recently developed Licklider transmission protocol (LTP) CLA (i.e., LTPCL).

Analysis of Communication Interconnectedness in the Proximity of Near-Earth Asteroids

In this paper we analyze fundamental local-area communication issues related to proximity operations around near-earth asteroids. We are motivated by NASA’s plan to send robotic spacecraft to

Experimental Evaluation of Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN) Protocols for Long-Delay Cislunar Communications

An experimental evaluation of the DTN protocols with BP/TCPCL running on top of TCP/IP over a long-delay cislunar communication channel with and without link disruption is presented.

Interconnecting Standard M2M Platforms to Delay Tolerant Networks

This paper proposes an architecture to interconnect Standard ETSI/oneM2M M2M platforms to DTNs that apply a wake-up system for resource-constrained sensors.
