Disaster response teams need rapid communications with their local headquarters whilst in the field. The only channels are typically low-bandwidth and expensive, like satellite phones. Succinct data transmits short messages like MeshMS over these channels by using data compression, relegating large data items like images or videos to Rhizome, which will arrive later.
