Recent large scale disasters have highlighted the importance of a robust and efficient public safety communication network able to coordinate emergency operations even when existing infrastructures are damaged. The Incident Area Network (IAN) is a self-forming temporary network infrastructures brought to the scene of an incident to support personal and local communications among different public safety end-users. In this work we are interested in investigating how the High Altitude Platform (HAP) can effectively support Multimedia Broadcast/Multicast Service (MBMS) in a scenario wherein the preexistent terrestrial network is not available. To this aim, we propose an efficient policy of Radio Resource Management (RRM) based on cooperation framework between HAP and Mobile Ad-Hoc NETwork (MANET). The proposed solution has been successfully tested through a comprehensive simulation campaign.
