The capabilities of emerging technologies based on the IEEE 802.16e-2009 standard are being considered as a potential commercial off-the-shelf solution to the operational requirements of the future warfare. This work examines the aptitude and challenges of deploying a tactical WiMAX network. Firstly, the State-of-the-art in Mobile WiMAX technology is reviewed. Next, proposed modifications are evaluated using system parameters defined in the context of military scenarios with the purpose of integrating WiMAX technology into the Armyâ€™s communications architecture. The project was named â€˜Estudio de Viabilidad TÃ©cnica para el Desarrollo de un Sistema de Comunicaciones TÃ¡ctico basado en el estÃ¡ndar IEEE 802.16e-2005 (WIMAX TÃCTICO)â€™, framed within DN8644-COINCIDENTE program co-funded by Indra and SP MoD with the technical direction of PEC / ITM.
