Airborne Networking Research - Emulation 101

Modeling a fixed, wired network is a tricky endeavor. There are so many interactions at the network protocol level and the application data plane that make it far more stochastic than deterministic. Now, make the modeled network wireless and you've elevated the degree of difficulty. Modeling free space propagation loss, signal, noise and interference as well as antenna gain patterns and directions make modeling wireless networks a far more challenging task. Finally, make the modeled network airborne. Routers and switches are no longer bolted into fixed racks with neatly dressed cables; they are literally flying around in the air hoping to build some type of connectivity on which a network topology can be created. Welcome to my work.
