The MAD project is an implementation of the FLUTE (File Delivery over Unidirectional Transport) protocol for the unidirectional delivery of files over the Internet over a multicast network. FLUTE builds on Asyncronous Layered Coding, which itself is a combination of Layered Coding Transport (LCT), Forward Error Correction (FEC), and multiple rate congestion control elements. The project provides a number of libraries providing the networking and error-correction layers and a file transfer tool that is built on top of them.
