Smart Phone Ad-Hoc Networking (SPAN)
Our current communications infrastructure is not as resilient against catastrophic events as we would like. Cellular towers can be destroyed or overloaded. Wi-Fi hotspots can lose power and network connectivity. The Smart Phone Ad-hoc Networking (SPAN) project turns mobile phones and tablets into routers to create an alternate means for information dispersal when other infrastructure is unavailable, overwhelmed, or untrustworthy.
