Algorithms to perform the network control function for the ground-based elements of the Strategic Defense System (SDS) have been developed and evaluated. The authors compare the analytical and simulation results of two broadcast routing algorithms, namely flood-and-forward routing and constrained flood routing to identify a suitable candidate for routing traffic in a fiber-optic communication network which connects the SDS command center and the distributed ground-based sensor and weapon sites which also host various battle management functions. In addition to the usual performance and cost measures, the packet processing rate required at each relay node is specifically addressed. Realistic packet processing delays are included in the simulation to provide a complete picture of the overall delay statistics
