Ultra-wideband (UWB) radio is becoming a promising field for new generation's digital communication system. This technique, based mainly on the impulse response radio paradigm, offer great flexibility and shows enormous potential in view of future fourth generation broadband wireless access in dense multipath environments. Ad-hoc wireless network is a number of nodes which communicate with each other over a wireless network channel without any centralized control, in this work the throughput capacity of ultra-wideband ad-hoc network has been found under variety assumptions. The computation of the capacity takes into account UWB specific constraints. The constraints are the power spectrum density limitation under FCC part 15 rules and the spreading radio required to achieve specific jam resistance level as well as a desired multiple-access capability.
