Proposing an Algorithm for UAVs Interoperability: MAVLink to STANAG 4586 for Securing Communication

Abstract

Recently, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles has become increased rapidly in both civilian and military applications. With the increased popularity and wide range of applications, these systems’ global manufacturer market has also been improved. UAVs play a vital role in modern warfares, and the country with this technology has many advantages over its enemies. A typical UAV interacts typically with a ground control station or a control station with different communication protocols. Among these protocols, an open-source protocol, MAVLink, is the most common and widely used protocol in the private sector. Despite being most commonly used, this protocol is weak, insecure communication. For military UAVs, the protocols and standards are generally different, and they are not openly available. NATO countries use such a protocol to agree on a standard protocol called STANAG (Standard and Agreement …
