Multipath Hybrid Ad Hoc Networks for Avionics Applications in Disaster Area

Free registration required

Executive Summary

During natural or manmade disasters, communication infrastructures break down due to massive destruction and subsequent loss of services. Effective rescue operations require a rapidly deployable high bandwidth network to carry out necessary relief efforts involving helicopters up in the sky and first responders on the ground. However, transmitting video and running high bandwidth applications over the network consisting of if RF (Radio Frequency) links is challenging. The authors' aim is to develop an avionics system consisting of a fast, high bandwidth, self configurable and reliable network for rapidly establishing communication among the helicopters and first responders in a disaster area.
