Abstract—Ensuring the reliability and high throughput of information channels between unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) located in different environments and ground control centers requires the development of ad-hoc networks of aircraft (Flying Ad Hoc Network, FANET) that can function in case of accidental movements, switching on and off of network nodes, in case of accidental destructive effects on network nodes, failure of one or more control centers. Unstable operating conditions of the FANET network determine the relevance of adapting network protocols of different levels of the OSI model, while most of the known protocols of wireless ad-hoc networks are optimized for specific operating conditions. An overview of the existing adaptive protocols of the physical, channel, network, and transport levels of ad-hocnetworks is performed. The directions of further work on the development of new adaptive protocols aimed at building FANET networks with improved characteristics are determined.

Index Terms—Ad-hoc network, unmanned aerial vehicle, UAV, flying ad-hoc network, FANET, adaptation.
