Quality of Service (QoS) for MANETs becomes a necessity because of its applications in decisive situations such as battle fields, flood and earth quake. Users belonging to diverse hierarchical category demanding various levels of QoS use MANETs. Sometimes, even a low category user may need to send an urgent message in time critical applications. Hence providing prioritization based on user category and urgency of the message the user is sending becomes necessary. In this paper, the authors propose Enhanced MAC parameters to support Hybrid Dynamic priority in MANET's (H-MAC). It combines both prioritizations based on user categorization and dynamic exigency. Order Statistics is used to implement dynamic priority.
