- With the advancement of networking technology it is anticipated to have Internet like functionality in tactical network. However, unlike commercial network the tactical networks operate under severe environment and resources constraints. Moreover, the MANET architecture and shared resources of wireless medium further put limitation on network design for high throughput. The access to the shared radio channel, within the mobile ad hoc network is managed by the medium access protocol (MAC). To achieve greater capacity and enhanced performance in the network, dynamic TDMA MAC is employed in tactical MANET waveforms.For such waveforms an important operational requirement is to address a variable number of nodes in a network to support the scalability of tactical deployment and have provision to respond promptly to voice calls with a short delay and small jitter.However, the large radio range and incorporation of ECCM further complicate the MAC frame design. In this paper, we analyze all these constraints for MAC frame design and demonstrate how it affects the network throughput.
