This thesis presents a simulation and analysis of the Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP) for mobile ad hoc network (MANET) environments using the OPNET simulation tool. ZRP is being suggested for possible implementation in the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) for the United States military. Utilizing a ZRP OPNET model that was developed at Cornell University, the analysis focuses on key performance parameters that include overhead generation, network adaptation, efficiency, and routing zone optimization. The ZRP model's traffic monitoring has been enhanced for this work to identify the engineering tradeoffs between efficiency and performance. The results of this thesis provide valuable insight into the analysis and performance with varying zone routing radius, node velocity, and node density. Critical MANET environmental and simulation parameters required for JTRS implementation into the military battlespace have been studied
