This is a specification for the network architecture and functionality of the Rapidly Deployable Radio Network. Invariants for each protocol layer, as well as configuration, reconfiguration, link quality, and mobility are specified. Implementation of high level functionality is prioritized, while refraining from over-specifying some of the interesting areas of research. Existing standards and areas of research are identified providing a framework for the development of the RDRN network architecture.
