TICN, a next-generation tactical communication network based on a wireless network, acts as the backbone of the whole network. TICN requires the routing which takes both survivability of passage, reliability, and safety of wireless link into consideration. A tactical network like TICN may maintain the passage for just a short period of time due to topology's frequent changes; In this process all nodes, dependent on batteries for their necessary energy, are restricted by batteries' durability in due course. To overcome this shortcoming, the up-to-date protocols consider only either of diminishing or balancing out energy consumptions. Thus there was a limitation to enhancing both throughput and energy efficiency. The thesis proposes a protocol which regards both throughput and energy efficiency, and enhances node survivability by means of minimizing and balancing energy consumption of the whole network. The protocol brings out an improvement in throughput and makes each node's energy usage more effective.
Key Words: TICN, Tactical Ad-hoc Network, Throughput, Node Survivability, Energy Efficiency
