We introduce ad hoc grids as a hierarchy of mobile devices with different computing and communication capabilities. An ad hoc grid allows a group of individuals to accomplish a mission, often in a hostile environment; examples of applications of ad hoc grids are disaster management, wild-fire prevention, and peacekeeping operations. We are concerned with the interplay between computing and communication in the power-constrained environment of an ad hoc grid.
