	att_abstract={{Teams of operators need to send and receive large data files
while in the field, such as imagery, maps, and audio
messages. However, traditional data networking techniques do
not perform well under the challenges of realistic field
conditions: the size of data to be transferred strains
precious resources; sporadic connectivity causes excessive
and fruitless retry transmissions; and one-to-one messaging
needlessly wastes resources when geographic density of
recipients is high.  This paper describes the Geocast File
Transfer (GFT) Protocol, which is based upon a scalable
geocast protocol. It exploits the efficiency of geocast,
one-to-many messages, and request pooling in
retry phases to significantly reduce costs and improve
file transfer success over traditional unicast based file
transfer methods in field conditions.  GFT is evaluated and
compared analytically, in simulation, and through field
tests of an implemented smartphone-based system.
