The IEEE 802.16 standard is a wireless communications standard which holds great potential for use by the U.S. military. As IEEE Std. 802.16 is a commercial standard, it can be used as a COTS solution for extending the reach of the internet down to the level of the individual soldier without incurring any development costs. Additionally, 802.16 "out of the box" supports end-to-end routing and is compatible/interoperable with other ubiquitous networking technologies such as Ethernet and IP. Given the wireless nature of 802.16, every soldier within range of an 802.16 Base Station (BS) has the potential to benefit from the flow of information from the Command and Control network, as well as the ability to contribute back to the network, increasing the situational awareness of all who are connected. While the default configuration of 802.16 has tremendous potential, it is at its base a commercial standard. There is a potential for modification of the standard to increase the usefulness of 802.16 for the military. This thesis explores one such possibility by investigating the use of SNMP to obviate the need for a Subscriber Station (SS) to transmit, eliminating the associated risk of detection through signal tracking.
