In recent times, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) create opportunities to support numerous civilian and military applications using its ad hoc network characteristics. However, several challenges still exist due to fast changing topology and limited communication range. Therefore, mobility models play a crucial role to enhance network performances by analyzing packet transmission and node movement. In this research, five mobility models, e.g., Boundless, Column, Manhattan Grid, Nomadic, and Random Way Point are presented for strategic comparative analysis in UAV networks. Moreover, the performance analysis of different network parameters (i.e., packet delivery ratio, normalized routing load, end to end delay, jitter, throughput, packet drop, and control overhead) are illustrated in case of AODV routing protocol for these models. © 2019 IEEE.
