The Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a conventional ad hoc network; nodes within the network are mobile, where each node is equipped with a transmitter and receiver, antenna, and a local battery. Each node may operate as a router to relay message from sender to receiver. Nodes within MANET are organized in different manners, they can be hierarchical or flat, they can move in any direction and speed, and communicate to each other by means of wireless routing protocols. Now it is the time for Ultra-WideBand (UWB) to be given more attention due to its great capability in high data rate, large Band Width (BW), and low power consumption.
