Despite the apparent abundance of modern communication technology such as satellites, computers, and fiber-optic transmission systems, communication capacity is a limited resource for littoral operations. The Navy and Marine Corps lack the dedicated networks to support such doctrinal concepts as Operational Maneuver From the Sea (OMFTS). One solution is to develop a Littoral Region Area Network (LRAN). The primary goal of this thesis is to underscore the littoral operating environment and bandwidth requirements. It also investigates reliable seaborne network communication systems complementary to satellite and wireless networks, and proposes an open, standards-based modular architecture, utilizing a network centric design model as the basis for LRAN. It employs modeling and simulation techniques to demonstrate coupling of the system integration processes with the doctrinal concepts of OMFTS
