This module provides extensions to the LTE including Device to Device (D2D) capabilities, as well as new propagation models and applications related to public safety communications.
The current model is based on ns-3.33 release and supports the following additional features:
Please refer to the following publication for further information about the LTE D2D capabilities, and the model implementation and validation details:

The following features are intended to be added to the project in the future:
About the Model:
The model was initially developed and maintained by the Public Safety Communication Project Group of the Wireless Networks Division (WND) at the Communication Technology Laboratory (CTL) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) - U.S. Department of Commerce. For further information about the research conducted by the group, please refer to the following website: https://www.nist.gov/programs-projects/public-safety-communications
This release was ported from an earlier release, based on ns-3.22, to the ns-3.29 release, and was integrated with the LTE and buildings module, and extended to include additional example programs and tests, by CTTC and the University of Washington. This work was performed under the financial assistance award 70NANB17H170 from U.S. Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology.
