NEDAT (Network Engineering Design and Analysis Toolset) is an engineering tool being developed by US Army RDECOM-CERDEC to assist network designers in the design and construction of mobile ad hoc networks based on end-user performance goals and requirements. This paper will introduce and describe the functionality of the current version of NEDAT (v2.1) and to show how it can be used in designing MANETs (Mobile Ad Hoc Networks). Results produced by the tool will help network designers to choose optimum components and parameters (e.g. protocols, transmit power) for the network to meet or exceed the stated performance goals. A description of the areas focused in the networking design space will be presented.
