Abstract

As the capabilities of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) evolve, their novel and demanding applications emerge, which require improved capacity and reduced latency. Millimeter-wave (mmWave) connections are particularly attractive for UASs due to their predominantly line-of-sight regime and better signal locality. In this context, understanding the interactions between the environment, the flight dynamics, and the beam tracking capabilities is a challenge that has not been resolved by today's simulation environments. In this work, we develop the means to model these crucial considerations as well as provide the initial insights into the performance of mmWave-based UAS communications made available with the use of our proposed platform.
