In recent years, the applications in the field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) systems has procured research interests among various communities. One of the primary factors being, thinking beyond the box of what could UAV system bring to the table other than military applications? Evidence to any answer for this question is the current day scenarios. We could see numerous applications of UAV starting from commercial applications of delivering consumer goods to life saving medical applications

In-order to perform the tasks and satisfy the requirement, the UAVs should be equipped with sensors and transmitters. Addition of hardware devices increases the number of connections in hardware design, leading to exposure during flight operation. This research proposes an advanced UAV system enabling wireless data transfer ability and secure data transmission with reduced wiring in comparison to a traditional design of UAV. The applications of this research idea targets using edge computing devices to acquire data in areas where internet connectivity is poor and regions where secured data transmission can be used along with UAV system for secure data transport.
