Speaker Bio for January IPNSIG Academy Webinar

Your Speaker: Dr. Keith Scott worked for NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory from 1997-1998, where he used ACTS mobile terminal data to characterize the effects of Ka-band satellite channels on TCP and SCPS-TP performance. Since joining The MITRE Corporation in 1998, Keith has worked on a number of projects for NASA and the DoD concerning communications in stressed environments including satellite and tactical data networks. He began working on the Interplanetary Internet in 1998, implemented a precursor to the current Bundle Protocol, and is co-author of RFC5050. Keith currently serves as chair of the Space Internetworking Systems Delay Tolerant Networking Working Group in the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems that is standardizing DTN protocols for use in civilian space missions. Keith is also a member of the Internet Research Task Force and Internet Engineering Task Force’s Delay Tolerant Networking working groups.

Your Moderator: Scott Burleigh recently retired from a position as Principal Engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, where he had been developing flight mission software since 1986. A founding member of the Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN) Research Group of the Internet Research Task Force, Mr. Burleigh was a co-author of the DTN Architecture definition (Internet RFC 4838). He also co-authored the specification for version 6 of the DTN Bundle Protocol (BP, Internet RFC 5050), supporting automated data forwarding through a network of intermittently connected nodes, and is now lead author for the specification for BP version 7. Mr. Burleigh led the development and maintenance of implementations of BP and related protocols that are designed for integration into deep space mission flight software, with the long-term goal of enabling deployment of a delay-tolerant Solar System Internet. Mr. Burleigh has received the NASA Exceptional Engineering Achievement Medal and four NASA Space Act Board Awards for his work on the design and implementation of these communication protocols

Please join us for our January IPNSIG Academy Webinar!

Keith Scott (Chief Architect, Advanced Networking for Assured Communications) will present an overview of DTN standardization within the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS– the global standards-setting organization for civilian space flight communications).

The presentation will include an overview of CCSDS, focusing on the activities of the Space Internetworking Systems Delay Tolerant Networking working group, including profiling of IETF RFCs for use in space, as well as space-specific protocols in the DTN suite.

Date: January 4th

Time: 1700 – 1800 hours Eastern Time Zone (US & Canada)
