    "Ad hoc" networks are wireless, mobile networks that can be set up anywhere and anytime--outside the Internet or another preexisting network infrastructure. The field has tremendous commercial and military potential, supporting applications such as mobile conferencing outside the office, battlefield communications, and embedded sensor devices that automate everyday functions, among others.
