|Summary||The Networked Airborne ISR&T Long Endurance - Communications Architecture (NAILE-CA) concept provides a long-haul UAS sensor constellation for ISR-T. NAILE-CA does not have network specifics to provide determination of the bandwidth, data links, apertures, compute, security, and autonomy requirements. Also, another item of this analysis is determining where to complete ISR&T data correlation, whether in the air, or afloat/ashore, and how that data can be safely and securely passed to ship/shore. Through analysis of current radio and networking technologies, we will be able to posit how to optimize network traffic for the NAILE-CA concept. We expect to find by completing a thorough analysis of sensor network traffic and correlation of data we will be able to proffer recommendations on how this all will be successfully accomplished. Once this research is accomplished, specific improvements to various sensor links may be examined.|
