Performance Analysis of Flying Ad Hoc Network with Different Antennas using Rayleigh Fading
In the context of FANET, use of directional antenna can largely reduce the radio interference, thereby improving
the utilization of wireless medium and consequently the network throughput. Performance of FANET is low under the
Omni-directional antenna systems compared to smart antenna system when Rayleigh fading model is used. Directional
antenna cover large area and transmit large no of packets because it focus in desired direction accordance with mobility of
nodes while Omni-directional antennas cover small area and less number of packets as compared to Smart Antenna
System(SAS).In this paper the performance of various parameters by using Smart Antenna System(SAS) is analysed in
FANET. The performance parameters include throughput, jitter, end to end delay, PDR and PLR in FANET with smart
antenna system (SAS) and Omni-directional antenna system in different fading environment. Then the comparison of the
parameters of Omni-directional antenna and directional antenna is done.
