Abstract
Tactical Data Link (TDL) is a communication system that utilizes a particular message format and a protocol to transmit data via wireless channels in an instant, automatic, and secure way. So far, TDL has shown its excellence in military applications. Current TDL adopts a distributed architecture to enhance anti-destruction capacity. However, It still faces a problem of data inconsistency and thus cannot well support cooperation across multiple militarily domains. To tackle this problem, we propose to leverage blockchain to build an automatic and adaptive data transmission control scheme for TDL. It achieves automatic data transmission and realizes information consistency among different TDL entities. Besides, applying smart contracts based on blockchain further enables adjusting data transmission policies automatically. Security analysis and experimental results based on simulations illustrate the effectiveness and efficiency of our proposed scheme.
