Collaborators will develop tools, theory, and methodology, for a new dynamic, modular, and reconfigurable network theory, geared to enable resilience, resistance, and recovery of our network infrastructure to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) attack. Thwarting potential attacks, and containing and rapidly recovering from a successful attack, requires the efficient exploitation of the vast existing military and civilian interconnecting infrastructure, and cyber-infrastructure networks. WMD-stressors present new challenges to network design and related recovery efforts that require new analysis and Synthesis techniques, new estimation techniques, algorithms, and information processing.
Collaborators propose to establish a mathematical foundation for network theory that will enable new algorithms, new analysis, and new operational protocols, all built on the notion of reacting to uncertainty. The goal is a modular dynamic and above all reconfigurable network framework.
