Anglova Scenario

The Anglova Scenario has been developed as part of the NATO IST-124 Research Task Group on Heterogeneous Networks: Improving Connectivity and Network Efficiency. This is an emulation scenario specifically developed for experimentation over emulated tactical networking environments.

The scenario is developed for the EMANE Network Emulation environment and consists of three vignettes:

  • Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield
  • Troop Deployment
  • Neutralization of Insurgents and IEDs and Medical Evacuation

At the moment, the troop deployment vignette is the first one available for download and consists of detailed movement and pathloss parameters for a battalion-sized deployment.

For the most up-to-date information, a dedicated web site has been setup for the Anglova Scenario – please visit

Clicking on the following links allows you to download the movement data as and the calculated pathloss data for both a 50MHz (narrowband) waveform as well as for a 300 MHz (wideband) waveform.

Java-based applications that read the above position and pathloss data and generate events that drive an EMANE simulation can be downloaded here:

The first one is a text application whereas the second one has a Graphical User Interface.

For more details, please see the following two papers published at the IEEE ICMCIS 2016 and IEEE ICMCIS 2018 Conferences. Clicking on the papers below will take you to the papers in the IEEE Digital Library. If you happen to use the scenario, please cite the following paper.
