For some of the main applications of mobile ad hoc networks as rescue and military operations, it is necessary to know the availability of such system. In this paper we propose model for connection availability estimation for mobile ad hoc networks, based on real measurable parameters that concern the performance of mobile ad hoc networks. These parameters include: routing protocol, number of participants in network, source destination distance, node velocity, mobility model, transmission range and size of the area wherein the participants in the mobile ad hoc network are scattered. Using the proposed model we analyzed the steady state availability for two ad hoc network applications, rescue mission and campus collaboration.
