Abstract—Aeronautic swarm network based on aeronautic operations is a new type of network scenario. Currently, aeronautic swarm network is facing the network congestion problem that needs to be solved urgently, which will bring new challenges to the research of its routing protocol. Through in-depth analysis of the causes and effects of network congestion problems, we proposes an routing algorithm of congestion control for aeronautic swarm network. According to the characteristics of aeronautic swarm network, load evaluation indicators are designed for the nodes, links and sub-nets respectively and used as parameters of the routing algorithm to achieve network congestion control. This algorithm solves the problem of network congestion in the aeronautic swarm network effectively and improves the real-time performance of data forwarding.
