Aiming at the complex structure of the space information networks (SIN) and the dynamic change of network topology, in order to design an efficient routing strategy, this paper establishes a SIN management architecture based on Software-defined Networking (SDN). A routing algorithm flow of the spatial information network based on a snapshot sequence is designed. For different spatial tasks with different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, the concept of integrated link weight is proposed. The Warshall–Floyd algorithm is used to design the optimal routing strategy. A Task-oriented Bandwidth Resource Allocation (TBA) algorithm is proposed for multiple spatial tasks in the same link. Simulation results show that the algorithm can effectively guarantee the priority transmission of important tasks and avoid the unnecessary waste of bandwidth resources. View Full-Text
