Do Networks Fly: A Review on FANET

Shashi Bhushan


During the previous decades, a lot of work has been done on UAVs due to advancement in the electronics, sensor fields which makes UAVs less costly. UAVs are a component of UAS, which include a UAV, a ground-based controller, and a system of communications between the two. To cope up with the problem of disaster recovery efficiently there is a need to use an intelligent and sophisticated technology called flying ad hoc network which can provide recovery help in time through communication and coordination between UAVs. Flying ad-hoc network technology is explored and its various applications and advantages are discussed. In this paper, we also compare it with the traditional ad-hoc networks like MANET and VANET.
