Abstract

This paper examines Situation Awareness (SA) as a factor in addressing routing challenges in HAPS/UAV based networks especially in multi-HAPS/UAV implementations. Routing in UAV based networks is a critical element for successful transmission of data from source to destination node. However, in UAV based networks the concept of routing assumes a more challenging dimension mainly due to the mobility of the vehicles or platforms. This paper highlights how situation awareness can impact routing decisions and consequently improve network throughput. It is suggested that SA should be considered a factor in mitigating routing challenges in UAV based networks.
