Implementation of software programmable radios to form ad-hoc meshed networks to enhance maritime interception operations

Maritime Interception Operations have become a core competency for United States naval vessels working in conjunction with coalition units in remote waters. An increased need for real-time communication networks exists that will bring VBSS and SOC Teams in contact with experts who can determine the urgency and threat levels of vessels at sea and possible targets on land. The ultimate objective is to deliver timely intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance necessary to achieve situational awareness by tactical and strategic decision makers throughout the chain of command. The most critical aspect of this objective is to be able to provide seamless wireless coverage for littoral assets and to provide the security of data for sensitive information exchanged between multinational and coalition partners. The objective of this thesis is to evaluate and compare the suitability of ad-hoc wireless networks using software programmable radios in a maritime environment for employment in military and civilian security operations.
