Peer to peer and traffic forwarding meshes offer great promise for connecting remote/detached emergency response units. Bitsink is actively involved in developing fieldable/portable communication solutions for quick response teams. These systems provide self-organizing autonomous networks that deliver IP-based communication including voice, video, and data, to help execute command and control operations.
Our work currently focuses on bridging fast-changing mesh topologies using OLSR and B.A.T.M.A.N. ADV with more stable networks to aggregate and disseminate fielded sensor data for analysis.
