In this paper, we study a problem of deploying wireless ad hoc relay devices in real time by public safety first responders at an incident scene without pre-planning so that a wireless communication backbone network can be rapidly established at the scene. A collaborative deployment method is proposed to enable mobile devices carried by first responders to exchange control information and make deployment decisions based on such information. Simulation results show that the proposed method efficiently establishes a reliable ad hoc backbone network at an incident scene.
