Abstract
Multi-UAVs close formation is the hot spot of current research. UWB (ultra-wide band) is very feasible to be applied to UAV relative positioning. In this paper, we propose to apply UWB technology to UAV relative positioning for multiple UAV close formations and consider combining UWB positioning with communication to fuse the state information of UAVs in close formation. The integrated communication and positioning system is constructed and its performance is evaluated by indoor test, outdoor comparison and flight experiment. Experimental results shows the effectiv
