The Large Scale Networking (LSN) Interagency Working Group (IWG) coordinates Federal R&D in networking technologies and services, including network architectures, wired and wireless network infrastructures, grid and cloud middleware research, and communication protocols, to enable robust transfer of data among ground, sea, air, and space systems. The LSN IWG reports investments to the Advanced Communication Networks and Systems (ACNS) [formerly LSN—Large-Scale Networking] Program Component Area.

 

Overview

The LSN Interagency Working Group (IWG) was formed in 1991 to coordinate Federal LSN R&D across 19 participating agencies. The group gathers information from LSN experts to ensure that government investment in networking technology and services results in innovative applications to address the Nation’s challenges, advantage its opportunities, and promote U.S. leadership and global competitiveness. This research includes both wired and wireless network architectures and infrastructures, grid and cloud middleware research, and communication protocols that enable robust transfer of data among ground, sea, air, and space systems.

Teams reporting to LSN:

Strategic Priorities

    • Promote long-term research in concepts, techniques, architectures, and protocols for future networks.
    • Enable cloud infrastructure enhancements from enterprise to tactical edge including standards and guidance for the adoption of cloud computing.
    • Scale data-intensive workload and management capabilities to meet the requirements of applications such as data modeling and analytics.
    • Achieve new levels of security and resilience for emerging wireless networks and multidomain internets and to protect core infrastructure.
    • Advance wireless networks through innovations such as the use of nontraditional waveforms and the deployment of nationwide testbeds.
