Multi-Point Communication Networks / Ad Hoc Networks


NASA enterprises have increasing need for fixed and/or mobile point to multi-point or multi-point to multi-point communications among sensors, robots and spacecraft Multi-spacecraft constellations to study the sun-earth interactions, interplanetary environment, Earth observations Networked sensors on remote sites on ground to collect data and then transmit the data directly to users via satellites Optimum design of protocols and network technologies a challenge.
