Often, theoretical approaches to problems do not always result in real-world solutions to complex issues. On the military battlefield, especially with communications, this is often the case. Mifitary networks can be divided into two main areas. The strategic network, usually made up of fixed locations, is typically the main collection point for information and subsequent analysis. The other primary network, the tactical network, is the highly mobile environment that our front line warfighters use to detail the ever changing battlefront. There is critical need for information to pass between these networks quickLy and efficiently. Unfortunately, these networks are often a hodge-podge of sub-networks patched together to perform important information collection and dissemination.

This research aims at determining a suitable middle-ware protocol that can be used for information distribution in both the strategic and tactical military environments. We narrow our focus on developing a new peer-to-peer overlay network that will remove the need for hardware dependency. Along with providing a dependable communications method, we propose that the solution be self-healing and adjustable given the high mobile environments found through-out the strategic and tactical fronts.
