Abstract or Summary
  • MANETs are known to be useful in situations where mobile nodes need to communicate and coordinate in dynamic environments with no access to fixed network infrastructure. However, connectivity problems can occur when sub-groups within a MANET move out of communication range from one another. The increasingly prolific use of UAVs in military and civilian contexts suggests that UAVs may be very useful for facilitating connectivity between otherwise disconnected mobile nodes. Network Centric Warfare (NCW) theory makes heavy use of MANETs, and UAVs also fit well into the NCW theory; this paper describes the work involved in integrating network enabled UAVs into a previously-developed simulation of ground troop mobility called UMOMM. Specifically, we created a simple decision model for constrained, constant-radius UAV movements, and developed a target-based method by which UAVs can distribute themselves in order to improve the connectivity of the ground members of the MANET.
