Our research focuses on military-specific problems in networking and cyber-communication offense and defense.
In collaboration with other departments (EE, Math, DA, ECE, IS), we tightly integrate student’s military operational and domain experience with sponsor needs to produce projects with demonstrable value.
Research Highlights in Networking & Mobile Devices
- An Application-Transparent Approach to Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN). Assist USMC Systems Command in its evaluation and deployment of DTN.
- SpeedTrap: IPv6 Mapping. Physical and logical network mapping of remote next-generation networks to increase cyber offensive capabilities.
- A Secure Mobile Distributed File System . Won IEEE Fred W. Ellersick Award for the best unclassified paper in MILCOM’11. Transferred to a Navy SBIR program.
- Integration of COTS Cellular Technology with Tactical Edge Networks. Transferred to USMC program of records and private sector (dual-persona phones)
- Malicious Activity Simulation Tool (MAST). Support realistic cyber security training without an increase in risk of network degradations.
- ADAPTable Sensor Network for Surveillance. Evaluate feasibility of DARPA developed sensors for small-unit defense Ops.
- SARDINE Topology Deception. Use principles of military deception to present a false picture of the network structure to adversaries.
