DARPA looking for a “clean slate” for MANETS -- Defense Systems

Goal is to investigate radical concepts for 20X increase in MANET size

With mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) limited to about 50 nodes before network services become ineffective, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) this week issued a Request for Information that calls for research paper abstracts describing bold, new technical approaches to overcoming the MANET scaling problem.

For the past 20 years, researchers have unsuccessfully used Internet-based concepts in attempts to significantly scale MANETs. In its RFI, DARPA wants to explore new technologies unencumbered by Internet protocols that could be the key to enabling large MANETs.
