Abstract: Flying Ad-hoc Network (FANET) is described as a special kind of ad-hoc network coming under the family of Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET). FANETs is characterized to have high range of mobility when comparing with MANET. Setting up the route and maintaining its lifetime is a tedious job in FANET, because the MANET routing protocols that already exist will never fit for FANET because of its increased level of mobility, environmental circumstances and topography structure. There arises a need for bio-inspired based routing protocol to overcome the obstacles. This paper proposes Artificial Bee Colony Inspired Protocol inspired from the bio-inspired concepts. The proposed protocol gradually reduces the level of congestion occurring at different routing path, where it considers the successful route setup and its life time to increase the data delivery. In ABCIP, bee colony is enhanced to analyze and choose the routing path instead of picking up in random. Simulation is carried out using NS2and the results indicates the proposed protocol considerably performs better than the existing protocols in maximizing the successful route setup and its life time, which minimizes the service disruption.
