It seems to me that the Disruption Tolerant Technology aka DTN is the latest technology to follow in telecommunications engineering. The DTN promises interplanetary Internet in future. Recently an experiment was conducted in which Sunita Williams the Commander of Expedition 33 remote controlled a LEGO powered robot on Earth from space. NASA engineers believe that with this technology they will be able to control and operate robots located on distant planets and the space stations as the signal relays.

Bundled Protocol (BP) which is used in DTN is said to be very similar with that of the Internet Protocol (IP) used in communication between the servers connected via Internet. I've been wondering about a few questions -

1. How is DTN different from current technologies?
2. Controlling a remote robot isn't an entirely new thing. NASA however had to use a special infrastructure to carry out the experiment.
3. Do you think DTN promises any improvements in the existing Internet setup we have in the world?

Will appreciate your responses. Posted in: #Coffee Room

i guess, actually it's not really different from the other technology, they used same processing too. but improved the TxRx system that support for the extreme environment. all path will distribute without delay, increasing bandwith make it happen. i wonder a new question (how big t1 they need?).
