Reminder – COMSOC VDL Presentation: “Connecting Space Assets to the Internet: Challenges and Solutions”

October 29, 2021 @ 7:45 pm - 9:15 pm

Dr. Mohammed Atiquzzaman, an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, will talk about the interesting, exciting and yet challenging task of connecting spacecraft to the Internet. Presentation: “Connecting Space Assets to the Internet: Challenges and Solutions” Data communications between Earth and spacecraft, such as satellites, have traditionally been carried out through dedicated links. Shared links using Internet Protocol-based communication offers a number of advantages over dedicated links. The movement of spacecraft however gives rise to mobility management issues. This talk will discuss various mobility management solutions for extending the Internet connection to spacecraft. The talk with provide an overview of the network layer based solution being developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force and compare with the transport layer based solution that have been developed at University of Oklahoma in conjunction with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Network in motion is an extension of the host mobility protocols for managing the mobility of networks which are in motion, such as those in airplanes and trains. The application of networks in motion will be illustrated for both terrestrial and space environment.
