Considering the transmission delay of the avionics network and the process delay of the controller, every time slot in the boot subphase has the same number of matched guard time slots and there are also guard time slots at the end of the configuration subphase, which provides sufficient time for policy formulation, network configuration, and M-info packet generation.
The biosensor node which transmits in the input notice time d_notice period will pick up a new slot from the t_data_c contention window span that is utilized preceding every individual transmission and would intent its counter to the time period of the chosen or preferred time slot. If the counter adheres to zero, data transaction will take place in the biosensor node after transmitting a RTS signal.
However, each node manages its time slot by itself and if it takes very long time to schedule, it will not only introduce additional delay in the data transfer but also consume more energy.
