performance computer systems (e.g., multi cluster processor systems) along with MANE and pre-computed- path-loss option to experiment MANET environment with large number of nodes (e.g., 5,000 nodes) are underway at ARL through the DoD Mobile Network Model Institute program.
The authors appreciate useful comments from anonymous reviewers and the support from ARL management.
The authors also thank Mr. Binh Nguyen of ARL for editing the paper and for illustrating the path-loss computation (Figure 1).
