dc.description.abstractSwarms of autonomous unmanned aerial systems (UASs) are becoming increasingly popular as efficient replacement for manned aircraft. The major component that makes the swarm of UASs possible is an efficient exchange of aircrafts states (e.g. position & velocity) for all agents and the ground station. Advanced communication technologies are required to be implemented on each agent to enable real-time communication at high frequencies (e.g. 20 Hz) to avoid inter collisions and holding formations. To assess mesh network limitations and to identify bottlenecks, a series of simulations are carried out using actual hardware that is used for swarms of UASs, which are: (1) Amount of bandwidth that can be guaranteed given the communication system being used (XBee-900HP), each plane that the KU team uses, transmits 127 variables, 4 bytes each, at 20 Hz which means each plane needs 10 KBps and the mesh network might be able to support 53 UASs theoretically (2) Range limitations (3) Latency issues.en_US
