Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are infrastructure less networks consist of wireless mobile nodes which dynamically exchange data among themselves. Position of nodes in MANET changes frequently. Design of efficient routing protocols in such dynamic networks is a challenging issue. Many routing protocols have been proposed to improve the performance of ad-hoc networks. The on-demand protocols depend on query floods to discover routes whenever a new route is needed. Such floods results in wastage of network bandwidth. In this paper, the authors proposed a protocol Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing protocol with Multipath and Selective flooding (AODV-MS). In AODV-MS source node uses selective flooding during route discovery phase and stores node disjoint multiple paths to destination.
