As the impetus to extend computer and communications as far possible into the battlefield continues to grow, configuration management of these computer and communication networks becomes a challenging task. The challenges stem mainly from the volatile connectivity (due to network element failures) and sporadic mobility (due to the dynamics of the battlefield theatre). This paper proposes a self-configuration management system for such battlefield networks. The issues addressed and resolved by the proposed design are: (a) self-configuration-the ability to adapt and configure the network without human intervention when the network elements relocate, and (b) robustness-the ability to provide continued service in the midst of random network facility failures
