Paper Abstract

Wireless mesh networked (WMN) radios have been applied to unattended ground sensor (UGS) applications for a number of years. However, adapting commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) WMN protocols and hardware for UGS applications has not yielded the desired performance because of compromises inherent to these existing radios. As a leading provider of UGS systems, McQ Inc. has been developing custom WMN protocols and radio hardware that are adapted specifically for the unique scenarios of the UGS situation. This paper presents the McQ designs, the tradeoffs made in developing the designs, and test and performance results.
