—Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) communication and data links should have special requirements considering military concept of operations in order to fulfill operations successfully and safely. This paper reviews the military operational requirements of the UAS data link and communication systems for conceptual design phase of UAS. Military operational use of UAS introduced special requirements such as interoperability, robustness to jamming and deceptions, Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) etc. In this context, operational design requirements of UAS data link and communication systems are investigated in detail.
—Unmanned aircraft systems, line-of-sight operations, ground control station, interoperability, low probability of intercept.
