The more you allow for junk time to confuse the encrypted traffic the better your security in the transmission, but with the trade of needing additional error correction. One of the 25 slots is probably the master and is the broadcast signal to keep the other 24 in synchronization.


MADL isn't IP-based nor packet routed so there isn't subnetting in a conventional sense.

25 nodes is about what a P2P, store-then-forward routing scheme can tolerate before the
latency exceeds what's needed for air-to-air tracks.

There is synchronization but directional networks devote a good deal of that to
pointing, acquisition and tracking in order to keep the beams aligned.

And NG has some ideas for future MADL development including weapons.
