This paper explores the theoretical approach to improve existing Delay and Disruption Tolerant Networking routing algorithms using Game Theory. Game Theory is a systematic study of strategic interaction among rational individuals. DTN deals with networks in challenged environment. DTN focuses on deep space to a broader class of heterogeneous networks that may suffer disruptions, affected by design decisions such as naming and addressing, message formats, data encoding methods, routing, congestion management and security. DTN is part of the Inter Planetary Internet with primary application being deep space networks. The hypothesis behind modeling DTN routing as a game is based on understanding that routing is also a strategic interaction between the DTN nodes. This brings cognitive abilities leading to automated routing decisions.
