Abstract : The Network Architecture Simulated Test and Evaluation Environment (NASTEE), developed at the Naval Ocean Systems Center (NOSC) in San Diego, supports the characterization and validation of communication networks in general and network protocol in particular. A first generation NASTEE, written in SIMSCRIPT II.5 (NASTEE/S), was used to develop models for the LINK-11 Improvement Program, Navy MILSTAR Terminal development and VHSIC PI-Bus and TM-Bus validation. A second generation NASTEE, written in Ada (NASTEE/A), is now under development. NASTEE/A will include a library of protocols a library of channel models and a testbed. The testbed will simulate message creation, data transmission, and damage, exercise the respective protocols and observe the network performance.
