Abstract : This document provides a description of an error control scheme which can enhance the reliability of file and message transfer in the Battlefield Awareness and Data Dissemination (BADD) and Global Broadcast Service (GBS) programs. The proposed scheme is intended to be general enough for adaptation to real network considerations, traffic profile, channel behavior, and computational and memory limitations. As such, the proposed scheme will need to be modified slightly for actual use, and some of the necessary modifications will be addressed.
