The RAF project, Réseaux ad hoc A Forte efficacicité, belongs to the competitiveness cluster SYSTEM@TIC PARIS-REGION. It aims at designing self configuring ad hoc networks using reservation based access protocols using both time and frequency multiplexing. The project has three components : the study of ad hoc networks using a smart relaying function at the Phy/MAC level, the study and design of protocols for ad hoc networks solving simultaneously the access problem using reservation based techniques and the relaying issue for multi hop communication, the realization of a prototype using the IEEE 802.16e (WiMAX Mobile) technology.
The partners are Thalès, Alcatel Lucent, EADS, IEF, INRIA, LRI, Sagem DS, and Supelec.
