This thesis presents a simulation and analysis of the Ad Hoc On- Demand Distance Vector Routing Protocol (AODV) for mobile ad hoc network (MANET) environments using the Network Simulator 2 (NS2) tool. AODV is being suggested for possible implementation in the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) for the United States military. Utilizing an AODV model resident in NS2, the simulation focuses on key performance parameters that include the packet delivery fraction, routing loss, buffer loss, total loss, throughput and goodput. The AODV node movement and traffic connection files have been generated to measure the network performance for a given environment using specific parameters. The results reported in this thesis indicate that the network environment size, packet rate and offered load are critical to the network performance. Node velocity played a minimal role in affecting the overall network performance.
