Improving Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET)

Plextek are leading a four-year research programme into an Adaptive Communications Transmission Interface (ACTI) on-behalf of UK Government’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).

Under the ACTI programme, Plextek are leading a team of experts from academia to investigate crosslayer processing to enable Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) radio systems to utilise directional antenna techniques. The key objectives of the programme are to create disruptive technologies that will improve the quality, reliability, data rates and range of military communications systems.

This is an important programme for the Ministry of Defence as MANET communication systems are currently limited by the range of an individual radio link and self-interference as messages are repeated through the network.

Beam-steerable, directional antennas

Cross-layer processing techniques

Ad-hoc connections and dynamic routing

Delivering operational advantage to military forces
