This work studies the technologies of communication applied in unmanned aerial platforms. An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. The degree of autonomy of UAV varies starting from remote controlled aircraft through fully autonomous aircraft. Currently UAVs can be deployed in several industries where presence of man is not required or risky. UAVs not only can be used in military and special operation applications, but also used in a growing number of civilian applications, such as policing and firefighting, and nonmilitary security work, such as inspection of power or pipelines. To functionally deployed UAVs, they need an independent reliable communication subsystem that are capable to send and receive data. In this work, the challenges associated with the application of communication system in these platforms will be presented.
