A New Metric for Routing in Military Wireless Network
Wireless ad-hoc network is generally employed in military and emergencies due to its flexibility and easy-to-use. It's suitable for military wireless network that has the characteristics of mobility and works effectively under severe environment and electromagnetic interfering conditions. However, military network cannot benefit from existing routing protocol directly; there exists quite many features which are only typical for military network. This paper presents a new metric for routing, which is employed in an algorithm. The goal of the metric is to choose a route of less distance and less transmission delay between a source and a destination. The authors' metric is a function of the distance between the ends and the bandwidth over the link.
