Problem statement: Mobile Special Networks do not have a predetermined structure. This type of networks can dynamically reorganize network connection relationships due to change of neighborhoods and the relative positions. Approach: There are many problems in creation of a special network such as routing, wireless media, energy consumption and transportability. Results: Although these networks primarily had been formed for small group of colleague nodes, nowadays they also have increasing amount of applications in expansive geographical regions. This trend reveals requirement of communication protocols which use energy efficiently and effectively as well as better energy consumption considerations of the hardware. In this study, an improvement of DSR protocol based on energy consumption parameter is explained and a new routing protocol of mobile special networks that is called Group Base DSR (GBDRS) have been proposed. Conclusion/Recommendations: It has been shown that energy consumption related communication parameters as pocket loss and route discovery frequency have considerably better values when GBDSR is used in the increasing node movement speed range of 0-30 m sec-1 and over.
