Mobile ad hoc networks have become the basis of the military's network-centric warfare (NCW) approach. However, for NCW to be successful, it is imperative that the networks be designed in a robust manner with the capability to produce consistent predictable results despite the uncertainties of the underlying environment. This underscores the need for formal systematic methodologies to design and predict performance of such networks. The challenges of mobile ad hoc networking combined with those associated with the stringent requirements posed by NCW systems, however, are daunting, and thus no systematic design techniques for NCW system design exist. To address this problem, a joint project was initiated between CERDEC and Telcordia Technologies to develop the Network Engineering Design Analytic Toolset (NEDAT) - a toolset that applies network-science-based approaches to design MANETs for use in NCW. Rooted in formal/analytic techniques, NEDAT can be used to design MANETs for use in NCW given information about available resources and performance objectives, analyze performance of a given NCW network, and understand design trades.
