In this paper an on-demand multipath source routing scheme in mobile ad hoc networks called "split multipath - dynamic source routing" (SMP-DSR) is proposed. The proposed protocol establishes and utilizes multipath maximally disjoint routes in order to improve fault tolerance and to provide load balancing via multipath routing. Based on simulation results, our protocol performs well over a variety of environmental conditions such as host density and movement rates, particularly it achieves a high rate of successful packet delivery in all cases.
