The Tactical Networks Group (65) specializes in advanced network
and communications systems development, with a focus on mobile and
airborne networks of the future. Tactical wireless networks differ
from commercial wireless networks in the lack of infrastructure to
support stable connectivity. The varied and stressing operational
environment, as well as aircraft speeds and maneuverability, and
platform integration provide additional challenges to communication
and network systems. The Tactical Networks Group uses a combination
of technical analysis, modeling, simulation, emulation, prototype
development, and flight tests to develop new communication systems
and evaluate and predict their performance.
- Develop advanced concepts and architectures for mobile ad-hoc
networks using both line-of-site wireless and satellite
communication links. Network nodes will include mobile ground,
airborne, and space entities.
- Synthesize and analyze solutions to mobile military networking
using analytical, simulation, emulation, and prototyping
- Examine and experiment with interactions between heterogeneous
networks to determine end-to-end performance issues and research
solutions to those issues.
- Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or similar
fields and research experience in one or more of the following
areas is required: network protocol design and analysis, wireless
networking algorithms and techniques, link layer analysis and
design, and network simulation techniques.
- In lieu of a Ph.D., an M.S. with 5+ years of directly relevant
experience is acceptable.
- Knowledge of communications waveforms, network protocols,
computer architecture, and software development.
