How can tactical communication networks operate without failing in highly congested and contested environments? Our group strives to answer that question by developing advanced network and communications systems, particularly mobile and airborne networks. We conduct emulation, modeling, and simulation to develop new communication systems, for instance, a mobile network that can support communication even in a GPS-denied environment. Then we develop prototypes and perform flight tests to ensure proper performance in a tactical environment.
