Abstract

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) have been widely
used both in military and in civilian applications. However, the
cooperation of small and mini drones in a network is capable of
further improving both the performance and the coverage area
of UAVs. Naturally, there are numerous new challenges to be
solved before the wide-spread introduction of multi-UAV based
heterogeneous Flying Ad Hoc Networks (FANET), including the
formulation of a stable network structure. Meanwhile, an efficient
gateway selection algorithm and management mechanism is
required as well. On the other hand, the stability control of the
hierarchical UAV network guarantees the efficient collaboration
of the drones. In this article, we commence with surveying
the FANET structure and its protocol architecture. Then, a
variety of distributed gateway selection algorithms and cloudbased
stability control mechanisms
