Abstract

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have attracted attention as a means of monitoring the environment because of their ability to remotely collect data from distant places. However, due to the payload limitations, the communication range of UAVs is limited. Therefore, UAVs need to cooperate with other UAVs in order to achieve high speed and long distance communication. In this paper, we construct a base model of data transmission over multi-hop UAV networks. Time Division, Long Term Evolution Advanced (TD-LTE-A) relaying is a technique that may be applicable to such networks. However, it is currently not suitable for UAV networks due to the limitation caused by its frame structure. Therefore, in this study, we propose a TDLTE-A based radio access scheme that can realize efficient relay communication. The effectiveness of this proposed radio access scheme is evaluated through simulation.
