AeroRP Performance in Highly-dynamic Airborne Networks Using 3D Gauss-Markov Mobility Model
Emerging airborne networks require domainspecific routing protocols to cope with the challenges faced by the highly-dynamic aeronautical environment. We present an ns-3 based performance comparison of the AeroRP protocol with conventional MANET routing protocols. To simulate a highly-dynamic airborne network, accurate mobility models are needed for the physical movement of nodes. The fundamental problem with many synthetic mobility models is their random, memoryless behavior. Airborne ad hoc networks require a flexible memory-based 3-dimensional mobility model. Therefore, we have implemented a 3-dimensional Gauss-Markov mobility model in ns-3 that appears to be more realistic than memoryless models such as random waypoint and random walk. Using this model, we are able to simulate the airborne networking environment with greater realism than was previously possible and show that AeroRP has several advantages over other MANET routing protocols.
