Abstract: Smart Antenna Systems (SAS) are providing a strong increasing impact in digital wireless communication systems. Due to their great advantages regarding nodes power saving and coverage enhancing, SAS are largely employed on pervasive network environments such as MANET. Because almost the whole of existing network simulators use omnidirectional antennas on nodes, we propose a new version of Inet framework of Omnet++ that extends its operation also for network scenarios in which nodes are equipped with directional antennas. Furthermore, we created a new directional antenna module that simulates the behaviour of a Phased Array System and a very simple algorithm for power management in channel. The new proposed model presents some modifications to key-modules that are involved in a normal wireless communication scenario, in order to support asymmetrical communications between nodes.
