Today’s wireless telecommunication networks are very reliable. However, in case of a natural disaster, these networks can be overwhelmed by a tremendous amount of requests. A study in EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking, “Designing UAV-aided Emergency Networks for Large-Scale Disaster Scenarios,” proposes a deployment tool for UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle)-aided emergency networks to provide user coverage in case of a large-scale disaster.

LTE (Long-Term Evolution) femtocell base stations are mounted on UAVs or drones and brought to its assigned location. The novelty of the study is the design of such a network while accounting for the drones’ specifications, user requirements and a 3D model of the considered environment.
