    a session management protocol separating the underlying transport from the upper level application protocols. It provides a lightweight communication channel to the application layer by multiplexing data streams on top of a reliable stream oriented transport.
    NRL NORM is an implementation of NACK-Oriented Reliable Multicast. The NORM protocol is designed to provide end-to-end reliable transport of bulk data objects or streams over generic IP multicast routing and forwarding services. NORM uses a selective, negative acknowledgement (NACK) mechanism for transport reliability and offers additional protocol mechanisms to conduct reliable multicast sessions with limited "a priori" coordination among senders and receivers. The protocol offers a number of features to allow different types of applications or possibly other higher level transport protocols to utilize its service in different ways. The protocol leverages the use of FEC-based repair and other IETF reliable multicast transport (RMT) building blocks in its design.
    NRL has implemented a link-state routing protocol oriented for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). It is largely based on the Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) protocol specification (RFC 3626), however the NRL code base has several additional options and features
