We're investigating a specific pervasive architecture that can maintain continuous connections among MANET devices. We're targeting this architecture for computer-supported-cooperative-work (CSCW) and workflow management applications that would constitute the coordination layer. The basic problem of such an architecture is, how do you predict possible disconnections of devices, to let the coordination layer appropriately address connection anomalies? To solve this problem, we've developed a technique for predicting disconnections in MANETS. This technique serves as the basic layer of an innovative pervasive architecture for cooperative work and activity coordination in MANETS. We believe that in emergency scenarios, our proposed pervasive architecture can provide more effective coordination among team members.
