When the communication network fails or the signal is interrupted, the distributed fault-tolerant system can continue to complete the communication task, which is needed to improve the fault-tolerant performance of the distributed system. Therefore, the key technologies of fault tolerance need to be studied, including the distributed fault-tolerant communication network simulation platform, the communication-network information-storage data structure, the communication protocol between communication network nodes, and the fault-tolerant algorithm of distributed communication network system. In the marine environment, the fleet exchanges data through wireless networks to understand the situation of the fleet-detection area, which can share the processing and calculation tasks. However, the marine environment is complex and changeable, which can cause great interference to the wireless signal, such as sea and cloud-rain clutter. These marine environments will cause the network communication signals to be greatly disturbed, which makes the distributed system unable to guarantee the communication interconnection between each node at any time. Therefore, a data-sharing and distributed-system platform needs to be built, which will design a reasonable system fault-tolerance mechanism. Through the fault-tolerance mechanism of the communication network system, the problem of frequent-node exits can be solved. By optimizing the fault-tolerant strategy of distributed architecture, the system's disaster resistance can be improved. In this research, a fault-tolerance mechanism for a distributed system was designed, which is more suitable for node election.
