In catastrophic scenarios, wireless communication is an important means for coordinating rescue and saving operations. However, in such situations, the standard communication infrastructure is often not available. One possibility to solve this problem would be the usage of helicopter drones as flying relay stations. For the positioning of the drones, we would have to cope with disturbances of wireless media (interference from other nets, signal fading, etc.), an unknown landscape, as well as the need to add or remove relay nodes as they need to recharge.
