Wireless sensor networks are poised to increase the efficiency of many
military and civil applications, such as disaster management. Typically sensors
collect data about their surrounding and forward that data to a command center,
either directly or through a base-station. Due to inhospitable conditions, these
sensors are not always deployed uniformly in an area of interest and some sen-
