Speaker Bio for December IPNSIG Academy Webinar


Your Speaker
Dr Birrane is a computer scientist and embedded software engineer who focuses on the adaption of computer networking protocols for use in non-traditional environments. He has supported a variety of embedded software engineering efforts, to include theNASA New Horizons mission to explore the Pluto-Charon system and the NASA Parker Solar Probe mission to observe the outer corona of our sun.

He works with industry, government, and academia on the design and development of protocols to implement the Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN) architecture. He co-chairs the DTN working group within the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) where he is a coauthor of BPv7 (RFC 9171), BPSec (RFC9172), and the default security contexts for BPSec (RFC 9173). He is a member of the principal professional staff at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics

Laboratory as the Chief Engineer for Space Constellation Networking. He is also an adjunct professor of computer science at both the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and the Johns Hopkins University.

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.

IPNSIG Academy December Webinar Summary

IPNSIG Academy December Webinar Summary

The envisioned Interplanetary Internet (IPN) would represent an engineering feat as ambitious as it is complex.Proliferating telecommunications infrastructure throughout our solar system promises to reinvent space exploration just as the terrestrial internet reinvented how we interact as a society. We have taken an important first step on the journey to making this feat a reality, with the definition of Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN) as an architecture for deep-space networks. Our next steps over years and decades will be to refine and implement this work in both our terrestrial and celestial neighborhoods.

We undertake this astronomical endeavor heartened by what we can engineer today.There have been incredible advancements in both spacecraft engineering and terrestrial networking technologies. These domains have vibrant, successful industry, government, and academic components that steadily evolve our national and societal capabilities. Looking back at over 40 years of innovation for inspiration, the power of standards emerges as a common strength. Agreeing on features, protocols, operations, and governance allows bright industrious minds from across the globe to build diverse and resilient systems. To build an IPN is to standardize its important functions.

This talk introduces the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) as an important standards body working to enable our IPN vision. This talk begins by discussing how the evolution of the terrestrial internet benefits not just deep-space systems but also a variety of system closer to home. Then, a short overview of the IETF (in general) and the DTN working group (in particular) is provided. This includes discussion on how to stay up to date with the working group and how to contribute to this important work. Finally, this talk discusses other activities being discussed in the IETF, such as time-variant routing.

Important DTNWG Meeting Coming Up

We’ve been asked to raise this upcoming meeting to the attention of our members, many of whom might be interested in attending. 

The IETF DTN Working Group will be having an interim meeting on Wednesday, October 5th (https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/dtn/meetings/), from 13:00 – 14:00 Eastern Time.

The primary purpose of this meeting is to work through comments relating to updates and extensions to the IPN EID (Endpoint Identifier) scheme in
the context of 
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-taylor-dtn-ipn-update/

Making sure we have a credible, scalable, efficient naming scheme is important to many adopters of DTN (in general) and
BPv7 (in particular).


Please try to prioritize this meeting and please attend having caught up on the discussions so far on the mailing list and
having read Rick’s draft.
