Abstract
Wireless technology is often an integral part of military scenarios. Military scenarios are narratives that describe situations within which the military may need to operate. Military personnel, including military network operators, use these scenarios to practice their duties in those situations. The scenarios also provide military network designers with a context in which to identify specific products that meet the requirements of the specific situation. This context is especially important for wireless network designers, who must build military mobile ad hoc networks that are interoperable, manageable, and secure. Wireless networking concepts, such as mobility, network size, and quality of service, are important considerations when designing military ad hoc network information operation scenarios. Until now, the combination of scenario and concepts has produced a wireless architecture that may not be suitable. This was the result of the scenario being fully defined before dealing with the relevant concepts. This report proposes a process whereby scenarios and concepts are evaluated together, iteratively, to progressively produce a wireless network architecture that better supports the military’s needs. This report gives a general overview of wireless networking concepts. Their role in military ad hoc network information operation scenarios is highlighted. Strategic, operational, and tactical scenarios are established for secure mobile ad hoc networking. Concept constrain
