Lately, there has been an increase in the trend among Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) researchers to use Named Data Networking (NDN) as a network stack solution in MANET. Thus, this paper presents an in-depth review of the potential uses of NDN in MANET environment. In addition, this paper also provides future research direction that could be undertaken on the subject.
