1.  Introduction

   An Application Data Model (ADM) provides a guaranteed interface for
   the management of an application or protocol in accordance with the
   Asynchronous Management Architecture (AMA) defined in
   [I-D.birrane-dtn-ama].  The ADM described in this document complies
   with the ADM Template provided in [I-D.birrane-dtn-adm] as encoded
   using the JSON syntax.

   The ION Licklider Transmission Protocol (LTP) Administration ADM
   contains all of the functionality that is required to properly
   configure LTP in ION in accordance with [RFC5326].  LTP is a
   convergence layer protocol.  There is no flow control or congestion
   control in LTP.  LTP must run either over UDP or directly over a link
   layer protocol.  Because of this, LTP cannot be used in every
   situation.  This LTP Admin ADM provides the set of information
   necessary to provide retransmission based reliability on challenged
   networks, focusing on the information that are needed to manage LTP
   properly on the network.

1.1.  Technical Notes

   o  This document describes Version 0.0 of the ION LTP Admin ADM.

   o  The AMM Resource Identifier (ARI) for this ADM is NOT correctly
      set.  A sample ARI is used in this version of the specification
      and MAY change in future versions of this ADM until an ARI
      registry is established.  This notice will be removed at that
      time.

   o  Agent applications MAY choose to ignore the name, description, or
      other annotative information associated with the component
