Air Force awards IAI a new contract to develop an Adaptive and Automated Network Management Framework for Inverse Mission Planning over Aerial Communications

Dedicated airborne gateway/relays can enhance the effective range of communications and provide extended Command & Control (C2) coverage for strike, rescue, and resupply missions within or entering/exiting the battle space. A robust mission planning approach can enable detailed planning, dynamic management and adaptive control of the enhanced communications and networking capability provided by these airborne gateway/relays. IAI's proposed IMPACT system provides an automated and adaptive network planning capability that processes the network capacity and communication factors provided by the airborne gateway/relays network in conjunction with resource requirements of a new mission that is achieved by mission mapping. It optimally performs flow control, scheduling and allocation of communication resources for specific missions. IMPACT deploys robust stochastic optimization framework to reserve network resources, prioritize and assign critical communication factors for transmitter-receiver prior to the mission, and adaptively manages network routes and resource scheduling and control mission traffic flows with respect to dynamic changes during the mission. IMPACT system prototype is designed within the airborne gateway/relays communication platform enabled by BACN and JALN technologies. IMPACT effectively utilizes airborne gateways/relays as a high capacity and low latency network that dedicates wireless resources like bandwidth, frequency, power, to mission traffic and utilizes the available network resources optimally with the flexibility to adapt to any dynamic changes during the course of the mission.
