Abstract:

Wireless mesh networks (WMN) is a new promising wireless technology which uses already available hardware and software components. In this paper, we propose a hybrid routing algorithm for military applications. More specifically, a specialized scenario consisting of a network of flying Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) executing reconnaissance missions is investigated. Simulation experiments are conducted to evaluate the performance of our algorithm in terms of the routing overhead, latency, and packet delivery ratio with respect to varying number of nodes and node density. Three classes of node mobility: low, medium, and high are considered in the simulation study. The results showed that the latency tends to increase as the network grows larger. All the metrics revealed sensitivity in high mobility conditions.
