    Information-centric networking is a communication paradigm where there is no focus on endpoint addressing; rather, it is an attempt to achieve efficient information dissemination by focusing on the content that is distributed. In this article we describe how information-centric networking can be leveraged in order to extend NATO core enterprise services (CES) into the tactical domain. The paradigm... View full abstract»

    The Tactical Ground Reporting System (TIGR) is a cloud-based application that facilitates collaboration and information sharing at the patrol level. DARPA began development efforts in 2005, and introduced the system to a single brigade in Iraq at the beginning of 2007. Its use spread to all Army units in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Kuwait, the Philippines, South Korea, and the Horn of Africa,... View full abstract»

    The increased usage of net-centric IP applications at the tactical edge has pushed DoD communications systems to maximize bandwidth efficiency amid a limited availability of RF spectrum. One method of increasing bandwidth efficiency (especially with the desire to move to IPv6), is the use of IP header compression (IPHC) to compress headers from the network layer and above into small identifiers be...

    Spectrum today is allocated in frequency blocks that serve either licensed or unlicensed services. This static spectrum allocation has limited resources to support the exponential increase in wireless devices. In this article, we present the IEEE 802.11af standard, which defines international specifications for spectrum sharing among unlicensed white space devices (WSDs) and licensed services in t...

    Compressive sensing offers an alternative to Nyquist sampling in applications where taking a complete set of measurements is impractical due to either length of time required or the volume of data produced. Here we focus on applying compressive sensing theory to RF signal environments (which will be referred to as the "signal"). For multi-gigahertz bandwidth signals, using Nyquist sampling require...
