Disaster areas typical to deal with unexpected and sudden disasters, such as earthquakes and terrorist attacks, can take advantage of context-awareness, namely the capability of providing applications with full awareness of current execution context, to increase the possibility of saving human lives. Unfortunately, context-aware services in disaster areas require efficient and reliable context data distribution. Towards this direction, we present our quality-based context data distribution infrastructure, and we introduce two optimizations useful to improve both distribution efficiency and reliability. Experimental results, obtained by means of simulations, support our solutions.
