Tactical Radio Access Networks based on Future Civilian Communication Architectures
1999 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
We investigate architectures where a tactical radio subsystem can integrate in civilian systems. The idea is that civilian communication infrastructure sould be used whereever it is available. One such possibility may be found in the proposed next generation wireless communication system UMTS, where the defition of a Radio Network Subsystem (RNS), encapsulating all the features of wireless mobile communications has been proposed. We adopt this design paradigm to see if it is possible to find a low cost military network (by maximal use of civilian network technology and communication applications). The idea is to within the framework of an RNS, encapsulate also features specific to tactical wireless communications, a Tactical Radio Access Network (TRAN). Based on UMTS we describe two system concepts and architectures for designing a TRAN. Furthermore, feasibility investigation of the concepts is conducted.
