Description : NASA implementation of Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN)
Interplanetary Overlay Network (ION) software distribution
is an implementation of Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN)
architecture as described in Internet RFC 4838.
This is a suite of communication protocol implementations designed
to support mission operation communications across an end-to-end
interplanetary network, which might include on-board (flight) subnets,
in-situ planetary or lunar networks, proximity links,
deep space links, and terrestrial internets.
Included in the ION software distribution are the following packages:
* ici (interplanetary communication infrastructure) a set of libraries
that provide flight-software-compatible support for functions on
which the other packages rely
* bp (bundle protocol), an implementation of the Delay-Tolerant
Networking (DTN) architecture's Bundle Protocol.
* dgr (datagram retransmission), a UDP reliability system that implements
congestion control and is designed for relatively high performance.
* ltp (licklider transmission protocol), a DTN convergence layer for reliable
transmission over links characterized by long or highly variable delay.
* ams - an implementation of the CCSDS Asynchronous Message Service.
* cfdp - a class-1 (Unacknowledged) implementation of the CCSDS File
