InterPlanet Computer Networking: Practical Approaches to the Planet-to-Planet Direct Communication Without Intermittent Link Connectivity

The interplanet internet is a conceived computer network in space, consisting of a set of network nodes that can communicate with each other. These nodes are the planet’s orbiters (satellites) and landers (e.g. robots, autonomous machines, etc.) and the earth ground stations, and the data can be routed through Earth’s internal internet. In this paper, we propose an interplanetary internet system architecture to operate successfully and achieve good communication with other planets including the Earth. The architecture proposes a suite of practical approaches to the planet-to-planet direct communication without lossy links by addressing delays and solar or planetary interference in a disconnected regions of the planetary system. We propose a constellation of Polar relay satellites  and Geosync satellites for routing information such that there is always one satellite above the conjunction band that do not come under the influence of sun's radiation interference because that hinders the direct communication between the planets. Also propose a location set-up for planet Mars – Earth direct communication network for transmitting through other planetary spacecrafts and  positioning of relay satellites such that at least one relay satellite is not in a conjunction  that addresses delays during the periods of solar  conjunctions thereby providing continuous communications access. As it is planetary based architecture outline, the results could not be tested due to unavailability of large scale wireless networks over long distances however, the proposed approaches would be effective in addressing delays and disruptions in achieving direct planetary communication.
