The patent filed by BAE Systems Plc describes a method for determining a communication structure to link delivery unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with a base unit using a minimum number of communication UAVs. The method involves identifying delivery UAVs outside the communication range of a first communication UAV, adding a second communication UAV to support them, and selecting an optimal position for the second UAV to minimize the number of unsupported delivery UAVs. The system includes communication UAVs positioned strategically along delivery routes to establish communication links between delivery UAVs and the base unit, with each communication UAV supporting a communication region.

Furthermore, the method includes determining the subset of delivery UAVs at specific points in time corresponding to the presence of a delivery UAV at a target location along the delivery route. It also regulates the minimum number of communication UAVs based on the maximum number of communication hops from a delivery UAV to the base unit. The system allows for multiple communication protocols to be supported by the communication UAVs, forming a communication relay structure between the delivery UAVs and the base unit. The patent emphasizes the efficient use of communication UAVs to ensure seamless communication and coordination between the delivery UAVs and the base unit.
