Abstract

This article presents a practical method for the 3D placement of a group of HetNet of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV)-mounted base station (mBS) to offer maximum wireless connectivity and coverage for terrestrial users in a particular region. There are two ways to solve this issue. First, the ideal flying height for each UAV is determined based on the transmit power of the UAV, which offers the maximum ground coverage radius. Depending on their ideal flying altitudes and transmitting power, UAVs are divided into several categories. Given a collection of UAVs, the proposed approach identifies an optimum subset of the available UAVs and places them optimally in 3D to offer maximum coverage of the network for a particular area on the terrestrial ground while using the least amount of power. The results of the simulations show that the suggested approach is effective, and they also give important visions about the behavior of the HetNet supported UAVmBS cell subnetworks.
