The wireless ad hoc network is expected to be used as an alternative of the existing mobile communication network to make users communicate when a large-scale disaster occurs. It is also expected to be deployed to search robot rescue system in a closed space of disaster struck area. In this paper, we propose two communication models by use of wireless ad hoc network. One is a real city communication model considering the disaster occurs. The other is a search robot communication model in the closed spaces. We analyze and evaluate the communication performance of these two network models by using the network simulator.
