Abstract: This report covers the integration of the GAIAN Database (GaianDB) with the second-generation common sensor radio (CSR). Performing measurements with the second-generation CSRs, we discovered that Internet Protocol (IP) encapsulation of GaianDB traffic in radio frequency (RF) transmissions added minimal overhead to RF networks, and we observed high percentages of query success across our tests and a reasonable performance impact on query round trip time. In this report, we first provide background concerning GaianDB and the CSRs, and how these 2 pieces fit with the current scope of the Army. Next, we state our goals and how we accomplished them. Afterwards, we describe our experimentation, including setup, tests, and results. Finally, we conclude with an interpretation of our results and describe future goals.
