Summary This thesis will focus on testing and evaluating the capabilities of a smartphone-based system and associated equipment for "First Responder Networking." With the use of smartphones as personal servers, data is instantly captured and disseminated in support of first responder operations during humanitarian and mass casualty operations. By using this handheld based infrastructure, patient information and records can be rapidly passed to those involved within the Mobile Emergency Command Post unit and the Joint Operations Command Center for further backhaul communications from the disaster site to other medical facilities across a globally distributed network, for example, lad based military medical units, Naval hospital ships, stateside medical centers via tele-medicine.
