Title

Performance Analysis of AeroRP with Ground Station Advertisements

Abstract

Data transmission in highly-dynamic airborne networks is challenging, thus domain-specific routing protocols are necessary. AeroRP is one such protocol designed to operate in disruption-tolerant networks. Its multi-modal design enables it to operate in varying mission requirements. In this paper, we discuss the operation of various AeroRP modes and analyse their performance using the ns-3 network simulator. We compare the performance of beacon, beaconless, and ground station (GS) modes of AeroRP. The simulation results show the advantages of having a domain-specific routing protocol and also highlight the importance of ground station advertisements to disseminate geolocation information in discovering routes.
