The MIL-STD-188-220 is the military tactical wireless mobile ad-hoc communication standard which makes a smooth data and voice communication possible. This standard is known as the Interoperability Standard for Digital Message Transfer Device Subsystems. However, the standard has the problem to generate the meaningless traffic due to the failure of topology update, in the case of transmitting the only packet not requiring the acknowledgments to the destination node away from the radio propagation scope. Moreover, a source requires the intranet end-to-end acknowledgment from all destinations to confirm a packet delivery, regardless of the hop distance to destination nodes. This method has the problem to generate unnecessary traffic in the case to confirm the packet delivery within 1-hop distance. In order to resolve these problems, this paper has proposed the methods that restrain the meaningless traffic generation and simplify the procedure that confirms a packet delivery within 1-hop distance.
