Multi-Layer Ad Hoc Wireless Networks with UAVs is an ideal infrastructure to establish a rapidly deployable wireless communication system any time any where in the world for military applications. In this paper, we review the research we have done so far for our heterogeneous solution. First of all, we proposed the infrastructure of Multi-level Heterogeneous Ad-Hoc Wireless Network with UAVs. Second, we developed a new MAC layer protocol, Centralized Intelligent Channel Assigned Multiple Access (C-ICAMA), for ground mobile backbone nodes to access UAV. Third, we extended HSR (Hierarchical State Routing) to this Multi-Level Heterogeneous Ad-Hoc Wireless Network. Due to the intrinsic limitations of Extended HSR, we extended the Landmark Ad Hoc Routing (LANMAR) as our forth step. Security is a critical issue for mobile ad-hoc wireless networks, especially for military applications. We developed an embedded distributed security protocol and integrated with this heterogeneous hierarchical ad hoc wireless networks in our fifth step. Therefore, the hierarchical multi-layer approach is the most desirable approach to achieve routing scalability in multi-hop wireless networks.
