AbstractThe advent of COTS based network-centric data systems brings a whole new vocabulary into the realm of instrumentation. The Communications and computer industries have developed networks to a high level and they continue to evolve. One of the basic techniques that has proven itself useful with this technology is the use of a “layered architecture.” This paper is an attempt to discuss the basic ideas behind this concept and to give some understanding of the vocabulary that has grown up with it.

MOTION VECTOR ROUTING PROTOCOL: A POSITION BASED ROUTING PROTOCOL FOR MOBILE AD HOC NETWORKSZhao, Yun (The University of Arizona., 2005)A Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) consists of mobile nodes, equipped with wireless communications devices, which form a communications network without fixed network infrastructure or topology. The MANET is typically characterized by: limited bandwidth; limited radio range; high mobility; and susceptibility to impairments that degrade the signal to noise ratio and bit error rates. These characteristics pose challenges to the MANET routing protocols. In addition to these characteristics, we have found that the mobility pattern of the nodes also has significant impact on the MANET routing protocols. In order to achieve improved efficiency for these networks, we propose the Motion Vector Routing (MoVeR) protocol. MoVeR is a position based routing protocol for MANET communications that uses the motion information of mobile nodes to determine how to route the packets. MoVeR predicts the future positions of mobile nodes, based on motion vectors containing current and previous position, and velocity information. The protocol is designed for applications in which we expect that nodes will have access to a position service. We also assume the availability of a location service by which the sender can obtain an initial estimate of the location of the destination. Nodes using the MoVeR protocol distribute the routing information to neighbors in one-hop transmission range. Given the position information, MoVeR can potentially employ one of several forwarding strategies. The implementation used for this research employs a greedy algorithm forwarding the packet to the neighbor such that the neighbor is closer to the destination in the near future. Since the forwarding strategy could be subject to local minima problems, the algorithm also includes a recovery mode which is activated when this problem has occurred. In the recovery mode, the protocol traverses the planarized graph to the destination. MoVeR is a localized routing protocol and therefore exhibits reduced control overhead compared to protocols which maintain a global topology. The mobility prediction capability of MoVeR improves routing performance in several types of sophisticated mobility scenarios. We describe the MoVeR protocol algorithm, implementation, and simulation results show that MoVeR gives improved performance compared to Greedy Perimeter Stateless Routing and Dynamic Source Routing.
An Evidence-Based Protocol for Optimal Vitamin A Supplementation in India: A Best Practice ProtocolNavazio, Zea Duquette (The University of Arizona., 2013)The purpose of this paper is to propose a best practice protocol for providing children living in India, ages six months to fifty nine months old, with maximally effective vitamin A supplementation every six months. Vitamin A supplements work as a prophylactic treatment to prevent the occurrence of ocular symptoms and reduce morbidity and mortality rates in children. The author first identifies the public health problem of vitamin A deficiency and discusses epidemiological trends of incidence and prevalence. Pertinent background information provides the history of supplementation in India. A brief overview addresses the physiological role of vitamin A and the negative impacts that occur when daily vitamin A requirements are not met. The author initiates a discussion about culturally specific attitudes and values regarding the process of vitamin A supplementation. The diffusion of innovation theory provides a conceptual framework. An in depth review of literature reflects recently published research on the degree of effectiveness of vitamin A supplementation on the youth population in India. Additional research results indicate an effective dose of vitamin A supplementation and how frequently to administer supplements. The author presents recommendations for a best practice protocol that modifies the current vitamin A supplementation program in place in India. This best practice protocol includes a detailed explanation of implementation and evaluation of the proposed protocol.
TESTING OF A DTN PROTOCOL - CCSDS FILE DELIVERY PROTOCOL INTER-IMPLEMENTATION TESTING FINAL REPORTCarper, Richard D.; Ciccone, Massimiliano; Rockwell, Kathy Bryan; Space Data Systems; European Space Agency; California Institute of Technology (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2004-10)The CCSDS has developed the “CCSDS File Delivery Protocol” (CFDP), as a disruption/delay tolerant file transfer protocol. CFDP allows an automatic, reliable file transfer between spacecraft and ground (in both directions) designed to support the operation of spacecraft by means of file transfer and remote file system management. To support the development and fielding of the protocol in an international and cross-supporting environment, an international, inter-operability test program has been developed and successfully executed. First phase testing involved five independent implementations of the Core Procedures of the protocol. The second phase tests involve multi-hop transferring of files using the Extended Procedures. The third phase involves the testing of the SFO Procedures. The latter two phases involved two independent protocol implementations, namely, those of ESA and JPL. This paper constitutes a final report on the process of testing, the test results, the experience gained, and the resulting plans to extend this methodology to other areas within the CCSDS.
