Abstract:As armed forces become more technologically advanced, so does the need to effectively use this technology increase. One of the developments within the military for the past years is its increasing networking capabilities. Mobile ad-hoc networks are used in the military environment to increase cohesiveness between units and improve their efficiency. These networks however have to operate in hostile environments where there might not always be a (viable) direct connection between endpoints. Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) can help alleviate this issue by offering means to transfer data between endpoints using Store-Carry-Forward message switching, eliminating the need for end-to-end connectivity. To facilitate routing on these networks, several protocols have been developed. One of these protocols is the Opportunistic Routing with Window-Aware Replication (ORWAR) protocol. This protocol aims to optimize power and bandwidth use by dynamically reordering its transmission buffer and limiting incomplete transmissions. In this thesis we further analyse this protocol and aim to improve upon it to better provide QoS provisioning for military networks.
