Abstract
Just as terrestrial networks have shifted to routed, message centric networks, the satellite networking regime is beginning to transition in the same manner. An analysis of current networking protocols in conducted and determines that the unique mixture of static and dynamic links present in orbital constellations makes them equally unsuited for static network protocols and MANET protocols. The author explore how Social Networking theories can be applied to the routing decision maiking process in the space environment. Utilizing aspects of Adaptation and the Weak Tie relationship, a new protocol model is propsed leveraging the predictability of orbital mechanics to decrease network overhead and increase network efficiency.
