The ActComm Project on Transportable Agents and Wireless Networks is
funded by the Air Force Office Of Scientific Research through a Department of Defense
Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) grant. Kickoff on the 5 year effort was in July, 1997. See the Overview page for a good introduction to the project.|
- Goals: To develop technologies that will maximize the usability of complex,
global computer and communications networks, focusing especially on wireless networks, for modern
- Technical innovations The concept of an active
communications system: active software,
active information, active hybrid networks and active resource allocation.
- Impact: Future military wireless computer and communications networks will be more robust, more
powerful and more flexible under a wide variety of operating environments.
- Approach: Active elements will be
coordinated by a novel architecture that uses advanced agents to manage network, computer and information
assets delivering high confidence communications and computing.
