Projects
Space-Data Routers For Exploiting Space DATA

FP-7 Project co-funded by European Commission
SPA.2010.2.1-03 Exploitation of science and exploration data

The objective of the project is to built a Space-Data Router, relying on space internetworking – and in particular in Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN), which will unify space and earth communication infrastructures and will deliver a set of tools and protocols for space-data exploitation.

Space Internetworks participation is associated mainly with the integration of all the components of the router into a functioning device. That is, applications, application protocols, transport layers, bundles and link layers will be linked on stacks using appropriate convergence layers and software adaptors.

Furthermore, Space Internetworks will participate in the evaluation of the overall system efficiency.
