Abstract [en]

Due to the maturity of technological development, widespread use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is becoming prevalent in the civil and commercial sectors. One promising area of application is in emergency rescue support. As recently seen in a number of natural catastrophes such as the hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, major communication and electrical infrastructure is knocked out, leading to an inability to communicate between the victims and rescuers on the ground as well as between rescuers themselves. This paper studies the feasibility of using heterogeneous teams of UAVs to rapidly deliver and establish ad hoc communication networks in operational environments through autonomous in-air delivery of CommKits that serve as nodes in local ad hoc networks. Hardware and software infrastructures for autonomous CommKit delivery in addition to CommKit specification and construction is considered. The results of initial evaluation of two design alternatives for CommKits are presented based on more than 25 real flight tests in different weather conditions using a commercial small-scale UAV platform.
