Time-Weighted Coverage of Integrated Aerial and Ground Networks for Post-Disaster Communications

17 Mar 2020 Xu Xiaoli Zeng Yong

In this paper, we propose a new three dimensional (3D) networking architecture with integrated aerial and ground base stations (BSs) for swift post-disaster communication recovery. By exploiting their respective advantages in terms of response time, coverage area, and operational duration, the proposed network is highly heterogeneous, consisting of sustained ground BSs, ground-vehicle mounted BSs, dropping-off BSs and flying BSs...
