Title: Hybrid Autonomous Router for Tactical (HART) Networks
Agency: DOD
Contract: FA8750-12-C-0213
Award Amount: $749,249.00
 

Abstract:

Building upon the successful results of the Phase I SBIR effort, Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) will build a TRL 6 prototype of the Hybrid Autonomous Router for Tactical Networks (HART). HART will address the need identified by the DoD for an autonomous IP based network integration solution that provides end-to-end sensor-to-shooter connectivity across a heterogeneous tactical network consisting of IP sub-networks of various types such as TTNT, mini-CDL, free space optics communications (FSOC), QNT, and JCAN. HART will improve the availability and performance of network-centric airborne applications by enhancing commercially available routers with two key capabilities: autonomous mission persistent network connectivity and autonomous mission optimized network connectivity. By autonomously integrating a diverse set of mobile IP subnets into a seamless tactical IP network, HART will enable the delivery of decision quality information to mobile warfighters and first responders at the right place and at the right time.
