Register Now to Explore the Tech Behind the Interplanetary Internet!
Normal SciFi glosses over a glaring problem with comms through the vastness of space… The Internet and TCP/IP suffer a massive self-imposed DOS attack with any disruptions for more than a few seconds. Ignoring that fact doesn’t cut it for bestselling author, Daniel Suarez. How do we hack it to make it work for a realistic, near future novel on mining asteroids? Enter Scott Burleigh and an international team from NASA, other national space agencies and industry. They already did it! It’s called DTN. Join them for details, security considerations and how to get involved in this FREE EH-Net Live! webinar on Thurs June 27, 2019 at 1:00 PM US Eastern. Join us live to receive certificates for easy submission of CPEs!

|Scott Burleigh – IPNSIG Vice Chair
Scott Burleigh has been working on software for space flight missions since 1986. Mr. Burleigh co-authored the specification for the CCSDS (Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems) File Delivery Protocol (CFDP), an international standard for file transfer over interplanetary distances. He also developed the first implementation of CFDP, for use on a number of flight missions including the Deep Impact comet exploration mission. He was a co-author of the DTN Architecture definition (Internet RFC 4838), aimed at enabling deployment of a Solar System Internet, and he co-authored the specification for the DTN Bundle Protocol (BP, Internet RFC 5050). He is the principal developer of the open-source ION implementation of the DTN architecture; ION is in continuous operation on the International Space Station and has been downloaded over 17,000 times by developers and students in 110 countries. Mr. Burleigh has received the NASA Exceptional Engineering Achievement Medal and four NASA Space Act Board Awards for his work on space communication protocols.
