Simulating Large Wireless Battlefield Networks Using Mobile Agents

Ishrath Jahan, Syed Faiazuddin, S. C. V. Ramana Rao, Mahammad D. V., and Nagendra Kumar V. V.

Abstract—In the future automated battlefield, Mobile Agents (MA) are rising because there are several benefits. An agent is any program that acts on behalf of a user. In general, an agent is an autonomous entity that performs one or several tasks in order to achieve some goals. These agents are autonomous, interactive, adaptive, proxy, co coordinative, co operative, trust worthy and one of the main properties of agent is Mobile – Able to transport itself from one environment to another. In such a hierarchical network, nodes are generally partitioned into groups. Each group has one or more backbone nodes that provide access points to the backbone network and to Mobile Agents. Communications between groups can thus utilize links at higher level. A critical protocol in the operation of such a large mobile network is routing. Previous research of Mobile Agents based systems has generally assumed the use of a hierarchical routing scheme, for example, Extended Hierarchical State Routing (EHSR). However, a hierarchical scheme like EHSR has some limitations. In this paper, we extend Landmark Ad Hoc Routing (LANMAR) to a hierarchical structure with backbone nodes, high quality backbone links and Mobile Agents. We show that the basic LANMAR scheme can be extended to incorporate backbone and Mobile Agents links. We will also show how backbone links and Mobile Agents links are automatically discovered by the LANMAR routing algorithm and are used effectively to reach remote destinations (thus reducing the hop distance). In other words, our scheme will combine the benefits of ―flat‖ LANMAR routing and physical network hierarchy, without suffering of the intrinsic EHSR limitations.

Index Terms—LANMAR, EHSR, mobile agents, cluster, routing.
