Routing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to Co-optimize Mission Effectiveness and Network Performance with Dynamic Programming

Routing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to Co-optimize Mission Effectiveness and Network Performance with Dynamic Programming published on

Authored by Air Force Institute of Technology

In support of the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) vision of the layered sensing operations center, command and control intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (C2ISR) more focus must be placed on architectures that support information systems, rather than just the information systems themselves. By extending the role of UAVs beyond simply intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations and into a dual-role with networking operations we can better utilize our information assets. To achieve the goal of dual-role UAVs, a concrete approach to planning must be taken. This research defines a mathematical model and a non-trivial deterministic algorithmic approach to determining UAV placement to support ad-hoc network capability, while maintaining the valuable service of surveillance activities.
