MANET is a temporary set of connections in which nodes are moving without any fixed infrastructure or centralized supervision. The main characteristics of MANETs are: the complete lack of centralized control, lack of association among nodes, rapid mobility of hosts, frequent dynamically varying network topology, shared broadcast radio channel etc. There are many applications of MANET such as network-centric military/battlefield environments, emergency/rescue operations, disaster relief operations, intelligent transportation systems, fault-tolerant mobile sensor grids, environment control, and other security sensitive applications.
