What documents can I look at?
The documents below bring together the driving issues, design, and some elements of the implementation of the DTN prototype (see code availability below). The DTNRG is basing its architecture on a generalization of the work carried out by the previous IRTF Interplanetary Internet Research Group, and the Interplanetary Internet Special Interest Group (part of the Internet Society) before that. As such, a few of the documents below were created with a particular attention to the space context rather than the more generalized DTN context. Most of those appear in the "archived documents" section, below.
