TCP Extensions for Space Communication (aka SCPS-TP)

R.C. Durst and G.J. Miller (MITRE) and E.J. Travis (Gemini Industries)

One-line summary: Roll together many TCP-for-wireless optimizations, but change them slightly, in order to adapt TCP for communication with satellites, the space shuttle, etc.

Overview/Main Points


TCP In Space! About time we started adapting proven protocols rather than rewriting from scratch for each mission (this is what NASA has done to date).
