Paper Abstract

The objective of our research is to develop innovative techniques for routing packets in a satellite network using point-to-point laser communications. In this paper we summarize our findings on topology analysis, introduce a link assignment algorithm used to study the effects of link retargeting, and briefly present a 2-level hierarchal model which offers four node-disjoint paths between all source destination pairs and attempts to minimize network congestion while offering low propagation delays. Network survivability is a key consideration, and impulse changes to the network are assumed. Satellite losses, link losses, and traffic flow are expected in bursts.
