Abstract
Military conflicts are shifting from jungles and deserts to cities. This is because terrorists, insurgents, and guerillas find these areas provide a rich target environment and good hideouts. With the use of UAVs, urban threats can be tracked and targeted effectively.

Multiple UAVs can be employed to share sensor information to counter these challenges and to perform Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions with greater ground coverage and better success rates. This thesis explored the various types of UAVs de...
