Paper Abstract

Light armoured vehicles will rely on sensors, on-board computing and digital wireless communications to achieve improved performance and survivability. Constrained by low latency response to threats, individual vehicles will share sensory information with other platoon vehicles benefiting from a flexible, dynamic, self-adapting network environment. As sensor and computing capability increases, network communications will become saturated. To understand the operational requirements for these future vehicle networks, the High Capacity Technical Communications Network (HCTCN) Low Bandwidth Testbed (LBTB) has been developed to provide a simulated environment for the radios and candidate database and transmission protocols selected. These concepts and approach to network communications will be discussed in the paper.
