Evaluating the Effectiveness of Altering the Distribution of UAS to Enhance Intercommunication

With their infinite number of applications and possibilities, drones are quickly becoming one of the most popular technological advances of the modern day. However, because so many people are starting to use drones, there are certain precautions that must be addressed before any major changes occur within the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration). My research deals with the inter communication between all UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) within a given area. In order for drones to avoid collisions, they must communicate with each other and know every other vehicles position. When the number of vehicles in a given air space starts to get too high, co-channel interference becomes a major concern. I am currently analyzing the pseudo random algorithms that allow drones to communicate with each other in hopes to improve and maintain connection between UAS in any given area with any given number of vehicles. It turns out this random algorithm might not be as random as we think...
