Abstract- Crisis situations require fast regain of control.
Wireless ad-hoc networks will enable emergency services to act
upon the actual status of the situation by retrieving and
exchanging detailed up-to-date information. Deployment of high-
bandwidth, robust, self-organising ad-hoc networks will therefore
enable quicker response to typical what/where/when questions,
than the more vulnerable low-bandwidth communication
networks currently in use. This paper addresses a number of
results of the projects AAF (Adaptive Ad-hoc Freeband
communications) and Easy Wireless that enable high bandwidth
robust ad-hoc networking.
I. INTRODUCTION
In emergency situations, it is of vital importance for
rescue personnel to obtain an accurate and consistent
picture of the situation, and to regain control and co-
ordination on the shortest possible notice. This
prevents further escalation, minimises the number of
