dc.description.abstractThis research evaluates the IEEE 802.16 standards and technologies that are currently being developed in the commercial sector. The robust capability of this standard lends itself potentially to numerous military applications. This research explores how this technology might address the shortcomings of existing military radio and data systems; specifically, with respect to the issues surrounding the Ship to Objective Maneuver (STOM) communications. The intent of this research is to provide recommendations on the necessary 'adapt from COTS' changes for this technology to address STOM networking requirements. This research includes discussions on the military requirements for an IEEE 802.16 adapted waveform. The requirements are for the IEEE 802.16 'adapt from COTS' are derived from researched on the Concept of Employment for STOM operations and the specification of the Joint Tactical Radio Systems (JTRS) Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW). These discussions offer an illustration of the complex networking demands the COTS adapted systems would need to address. Through detailed exploration of the current IEEE 802.16 standards and implementation testing with pre-standard IEEE 802.16a equipment, we were able to make recommendations on the COTS adaptations necessary to make IEEE 802.16 suitable as a complimentary technology within the STOM scenario.en_US
