AUAV network composed of multiple UAVs allows awide operating radius and various tasks to be performed. However, a UAV network mostly suffers from high probability of transmission failure due to interference or mobility. Also, nodes connected to the network often experience connection loss and segment loss caused by frequent node mobility and routing update. Since congestion is not the only cause of data loss in UAV networks, the TCP congestion control should not be run if there is a possibility of transient link instability unless a reduction in transmission speed is required. For this reason, we propose an algorithm to improve the transmission performance of UAV network through TCP with Slow-Start threshold (Ssthresh) value adjusted. The adjustment algorithm is called Adaptive Ssthresh Reviser for flying Ad hoc Network (ASRAN) that quickly restores unnecessary decrease of transmission speed in UAV network.
