Abstract
The report provides background on work carried out in the past by the UVSG with the emphasis on how this work has affected the design of UAV data links at DRES. The requirements of both operational and research UAV data links are also described. The report proposes a possible frame work for future research in the area of data links for UAVs including a proposal for research into the feasibility of steerable antennas for UAVs. The work would commence with the integration of existing antenna system elements with the UAV autopilot being utilized as the antenna controller. At the same time work would begin on the design of a steerable antenna with a gain of approximately 10dB. This work would provide a basis for the design of higher gain UAV data link antennas and special purpose antennas such as those required by communications repeaters and sonobuoy repeaters.
