Ladimer S. Nagurney, professor emeritus of electrical and computer engineering in CETA, in collaboration with researchers from Italy and the US, has published an article, A three-stage stochastic optimization model integrating 5G technology and UAVs for disaster management, in the Journal of Global Optimization. The article describes using a fleet of UAVs (drones), organized as a Flying Ad-Hoc Network, to extend 5G cellular coverage and services over a region of a disaster. It formulates the important optimization problem of quantifying the UAV-enhanced 5G services during the preparedness, response, and reconstruction phases of a disaster.

The article is available on the journal's website as Open Access.
