Information centric networking (ICN) is a next generation network technology that is expected to replace the current Internet. The fundamental concept in ICN is the access of named data as a principal network service. In this paper, we propose the idea of an ICN based disaster area network platform that provides the functionality of application services, including management and workflow, for disaster information. The platform bridges between disaster-affected and non-affected areas using unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with ICN router, and also supports cooperation between the current Internet and ICN.
