There is strong interest within DoD to utilize high-gain, directional antennas at both the transmitting and receiving end of the link in a dynamic, ad hoc network environment. However, the application of directional antennas (e.g., phased-array or sectorized antennas) in a dynamic network of mobile nodes requires coordination of antenna steering at both the receiver and transmitter ends of the link. Our solution is to apply adaptive, link-state routing (be performed by the OLSR ad hoc routing… Expand
