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.

   Licklider Transmission Protocol Agents (LTPAs) are software instances
   that implement functionality required by the Licklider Transmission
   Protocol [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 Agent ADM provides
   the set of information necessary to provide retransmission based
   reliability on challenged networks, focusing on the information that
   an agent on a network implementing LTP would need in order to run
   correctly.

1.1.  Technical Notes

   o  This document describes Version 0.0 of the LTP Agent 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
