Abstract

Link-16 is a tactical data link for providing information including tactical data link message necessary to a command and control unit. Even though current Link-16 transmits and receives only tactical data link message, there is a desire to send many kinds of IP applications over Link-16. However, too large size of IP header decreases the transmission efficiency of IP applications over Link-16. Thus, IP header compression algorithm suitable to Link-16 is needed without loss of performance. Conventional header compression algorithms such as RFC 2507, RFC 2508 and RFC 3095 are not suitable to Link-16 because it broadcasts information with low transmission data rate. In this paper, we propose a novel IP header compression algorithm for transmitting tactical data link messages and IP application data without modification of Link-16.
