The branch currently focuses on several key technology areas:

  • Pursue a mature delay tolerant technology for integration into a flight mission architecture.
  • Develop deployable space and aviation network security architectures and associated technologies and protocols.
  • Pursue the development of routing algorithms for power and bandwidth constrained environments.
  • Develop Network Centric Operations for Space and Aeronautical Networks.
  • Develop realistic space-based architectures for a routable, packet-based infrastructure.
  • Re-establish a significant presence within NexNAS/NGATS/Aeronautical Communications
