In real world most important concept in communication is dynamic environment. Due to continuous
changes in the environment it is not easy to communicate. As we know Flying Ad Hoc Network (FANET)
is the recent technology that has come in the networking environment. FANET uses important protocols
which are used for dynamic communication. Flying Ad Hoc Network is similar form of unmanned aerial
vehicle (UAV) without human intervention. Most of the design issue in multi-UAV network is
communication and without any networking protocol it is not easier. Some of the similar protocol are used
in Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) and Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET). These existing networking
protocols are further extended with the new concepts and enhanced technology. In this paper, we have
discussed on different networking protocols used in unmanned aerial vehicle. These networking protocols
will help the researchers that are working in this field.
