Congestion management of urban mobile network under heavy capacity and coverage demand by the moving dense users has become a denotable challenge to the Network Service Providers (NSPs). We have previously termed the ‘capacity in motion’ demand as the Place Time Capacity (PTC) problem and to address this problem, we have proposed the concept of Hovering Ad-Hoc Network (HANET) as a deployment of a fleet of airborne mobile tower vehicles to follow and serve the moving users was proposed. With aerial vehicles in a heterogeneous network environment, backhauling the heavy user data might be a problem. In this paper, we attempt to introduce the concept of Distributed Dynamic Backhauling for the Aerial Architecture (DDBAA) and analyse a situation of HANET serving PTC. We investigate the performance of the network served by the HANET, wherein every aerial device is following an intelligent backhaul mechanism to offload the heavy user data. This paper, lastly, concludes by discussing the observed results and indicating the future research work.
