  • Earth-station upgrade from Ku-band to X-band

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 1 - 6

    The Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) recently had a requirement for its X-band capabilities to be upgraded. The solution was to re-band an existing Ku-band earth-station antenna for X-band operation. BAE Systems Australia and DSTO worked closely to meet a very tight delivery deadline. The initial requirement was for a receive capability but the new antenna feed system has been de... View full abstract»

  • Reference Security Management Architecture - Guiding governmental and military Inter-Cloud initiatives

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 1 - 7
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3963 KB)  

    The evolution of Cloud Computing towards Inter-Cloud environments is in progress. Governmental and military initiatives are developing possible applications for Inter-Cloud Computing. One of the most important challenges for these initiatives is Security Management. Cloud providers have to manage and assure a secure Cloud usage within a multi-provider Inter-Cloud environment with dedicated communi... View full abstract»

    Placement of relay nodes in a wireless sensor network has been considered throughout the literature. The problem becomes more complex when we consider placing additional nodes into a mobile adhoc network. The mobility of the network requires that relay placement be changed constantly in order to maintain network connectivity, and the calculation of relay co-ordinates must take place using partial ...

    In this paper we show how the network routing protocol B.A.T.M.A.N. can be augmented by a simple hysteresis mechanism called Batrytis in order to provide a more stable routing table with no decrease in performance. This leads to an improved operating environment for various networked applications. We conduct various indoor and outdoor experiments showing the operation of Batrytis. We also demonstr...

  • NetCentric geospatial SmartCache - Caching geospatial information, infrastructure and services

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 1 - 5
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (296 KB)  

    As Defence systems and capabilities become more reliant on computer network infrastructure to supply data, information and services to all elements of the Australian Defence Organisation, disconnection or degradation of the network poses a very real risk to continuity of service. The SMS SmartCache provides a distributed caching solution and operates transparently to the user with no changes requi... View full abstract»

    In this paper we examine the use of radio frequency and wireless contention simulation models within the context of a complex network emulation. We show how through modelling of key parameters in radio equipment we can build a model of real Defence systems and emulate network scenarios with mobile plat-forms. View full abstract»

  • Implementing SATCOM-on-the-move in the land environment - Relating technical solutions to operational reality

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 1 - 6
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (379 KB)  

    The achievement of a network-centric battlefield has largely driven the development of satellite communications (SATCOM) on-the-move (SOTM), as a technology solution to facilitate the exchange of rich sources of information amongst geographically-dispersed force elements. While the technical enablers for this concept are rapidly maturing, the operational challenges are quickly coming to the attent... View full abstract»

  • The application of enterprise architecture approach to military concept development-Case study

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 1 - 6
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1314 KB)  

    Concept development and experimentation (CD&E) plays an important role in driving strategic transformation in the military community. Defence architecture frameworks, such as the NATO architecture framework, are considered excellent means to support CD&E. There is not much empirical evidence, however, to indicate how enterprise architectures (EA) are applied in the military community or pa... View full abstract»

  • Strategic planning and operational control in dynamically networked environments

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 1 - 6
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (705 KB)  

    We present a scheme for optimised planning that can be applied across strategic, operational and tactical scenarios. In a network centric world, a network to support an effective command and control system is ensured by incorporating aspects of the underlying communication network in the objective function used to select the optimal strategy. This approach provides more reliability and efficiency ... View full abstract»

  • Enhancing operational effectiveness by integrating legacy and future ADF systems

    Publication Year: 2011 , Page(s): 1 - 6
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (489 KB)  

    Defence typically acquires capability on a project by project basis. This acquisition strategy can result in a focus on the capability for a single project and traditionally hasn't incorporated integration with other systems and capabilities. This approach can reduce the operational effectiveness of the capability by limiting information flow within the battlespace. View full abstract»

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (759 KB)  

    The variation of through-water electromagnetic wave propagation parameters with frequency and conductivity is discussed together with wideband signal distortion caused by dispersion. Environmental electromagnetic noise and its limitation on the underwater communication range of various antennas are examined. Submarine communication and heuristic models of antenna types are presented, together with... View full abstract»

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (337 KB)  

    In this paper we describe the measurement and simulation based validation of a theoretical model for the insulated wire antenna immersed in saltwater. Good agreement to VHF frequencies was observed between the theoretical, simulated and measured results for the travelling wave current on the insulated wire. In addition, comparison of the magnetic field calculated using this current with full wave ... View full abstract»
