E.g., Your EIC article about a proposed Interplanetary Internet from Vinton Cerf. His document is an Internet-Draft and is in full conformance with all
provisions of Section 10 of RFC2026:
Interplanetary Internet (IPN): Architectural Definition
< http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-irtf-ipnrg-arch-00.txt >
The IPN is related to JPL's Sensor Web Pods technology and NASA/JPL's Wireless Sensors Systems on a Chip Advanced Analysis that I'm hoping to test among
other important wireless sensors like Digital Angel Sensors, once I establish an off-campus CITRIS testbed.
