This paper proposes a cross layer routing protocol which operates with Cognitive Radio (CR) Mobile Ad Hoc Networks. In the near future, with the rapid development of hardware and chipset functionality, devices with CR capability will offer promising opportunities within future mobile networks. The new routing protocol exploits the transfer of CR performance data from the Physical/MAC layers up to Network layer as contributing factors within the route selection algorithms, which is the first time that available channel condition is considered within the Network layer. The performance of the proposed protocol is investigated via simulations and the results confirm its favorable operation within ad hoc network environments.
