An Application-Aware Automatic Network Selection (ANS) router and method for automatic network selection, translation of data between networks, and application-specific feedback. In one embodiment, the router and method select between an Internet Protocol (IP) network and a Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN) network, monitoring the state of both networks, intercepting IP packets which could otherwise not be delivered, responding to the application that sent the packet, and translating a group of such packets into a DTN bundle; the software implementing this system resides on a network router that functions as a node on both the IP and DTN networks. In other embodiments, the system and method select between or among mobile ad hoc networks, sensor networks, vehicular networks, and satellite and deep space networks.
