TwiddleNet leverages on smart phones to facilitate information sharing among first responder teams during humanitarian aid and mass casualty scenarios. Situational awareness and relief efforts coordination can thus be derived from the timely and shared information. In view of large-scale disaster relief efforts, TwiddleNet is likely to operate in multiple sites with unique network establishments. The thesis focuses on testing various scenarios for cross-network, information-sharing operations. A new architecture, based on the study of the Nokia Mobile Server concepts and existing TwiddleNet operating models, is suggested in the thesis as well.
