ETARE is a project of EDA (European Defense Agency). The goal of the ETARE project is to ease the requirement to transmit more and more information and to interconnect the users in ad hoc networks. These ad hoc networks will link together the different elements on the battlefield (vehicles, foot soldiers, helicopters) and possibly connect them with naval forces. This will be possible through High Data Rate Networking waveforms, which will also insure interoperability between forces.
In this project, INRIA's contribution is focused on network layer. INRIA studies the various protocol's ability to handle heterogeneous ad hoc networks as well as QoS features. INRIA has delivered a draft document for this study with the following issues
