In this paper, we develop a wireless relay network model for an unmanned aircraft (UA) system, where an UA serves as a resilient moving relay among the ground stations with disconnected communication links in the event of disasters. A fixed-wing type is considered as our UA model, since it can operate longer than a rotary-wing UA without recharging battery, but the former can fly only in a circular manner and thus is difficult to stay at a fixed position. When the UA relays the received… CONTINUE READING
