This paper explores the problem of improving coverage and capacity of large-scale communication networks in disaster-struck areas. We propose a novel integrated dynamic cross-layer distributed energy aware emergency framework, E 3 F, that spans large geographical areas and variable time ranges. E 3 F enables adaptive storage, dynamic packet scheduling and utility driven forwarding that avoids congestion and energy depletion. Our extensive experiments with realistic traces show significantly
